A man has been detained by police for throwing excrements deliberately to attack others in a downtown residential complex in Jing'an District in Shanghai after a surveillance video installed by alerted neighborhood security caught him red handed in another around of "attacks".

Residents of a neighborhood in Jing’an District are getting furious in recent months and some even used umbrellas to shelter themselves even on sunny days after people there repeatedly found their clothes hanging up out of their apartment windows to dry often polluted by feces and urine that were believed to have been thrown by an unidentified neighbor living on a higher floor.

Some complained that they had been directly hit in the head by human excrements, and had to discard their dirtied clothes.

"Recently, a boy living here was also hit by an 'excrement ball' the day he was setting off to take part in Gaokao (China's national college entrance exams). The boy was all crying heavily after the attack. How could a person do this to others?" complained an aged woman who also lived there, who had also suffered a similar situation.

The community security staff reported the repeat attacks to police after complaints from neighbors mounted and installed five surveillance cameras there.

Police said on Tuesday that the guilty person was recently caught red-handed, who turned out to be a 40-year-old local man living alone in one of the high-rises in the complex.

One of the surveillance footages showed that the man opened the window of his flat, splashed a cup of liquid to the ground, which was suspected to be his urine. The video clip also showed him leaning out of the window, spitting and blowing his nose to deliberately dump the discharges to the ground. He finally threw out some yellow object wrapped up by a piece of newspaper, which was suspected to be feces.

Police said the man is living alone with low incomes. He reportedly said he had been doing this to vent his anger over his neighbors whom he hated for living happily and comfortably off.
