A man was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly throwing feces and urine from his window on his neighbors because he was jealous that they are rich, police in China said.
The 40-year-old unidentified man of Shanghai, was caught on surveillance cameras throwing feces from his residential apartment building.
According to the police investigation, several residents in the neighborhood have complained about instances of feces and urine dropping from the sky.
The complainants told investigators that they stopped hanging their clothes to dry over fears of being attacked with feces and urine.
They also walk with open umbrellas to be shielded from the feces and urine. Last week, a child was hit by feces as he was heading to school.
The child was crying after the attack and refused to go to school.
With mounting complaints from the neighborhood residents, police placed surveillance cameras in the neighborhood in order to catch the perpetrator.
In the videos, the suspect was seen pouring a urine-like liquid out his window. He was also seen throwing bundled newspaper to the ground below.
Armed with the evidence, police arrested the suspect on a charge of assault.
During questioning, the suspect told police that he wanted to vent his anger on neighbors because he hated them for being rich while he had no money.
