CTA Train Passenger Struck With Sock Full Of Poop

Holy crap. A woman says a man struck her with a sock full of poop while she was riding an eastbound Blue Line train in Oak Park.

“He had a sock full of his poop on me,” the anonymous 21-year-old college student told CBS. “It was everywhere; on my face, my hair, my clothes.”

The woman says the man boarded the train along with her at the Oak Park station, and she wasn't paying attention to him, just sat down and looked at her phone. The two never exchanged words. At the next stop, he threw something in her face. CBS writes:

“It was like the biggest degradation I’ve ever [experienced]. I wish he had just hit me,” she said, because she thinks that would have been less traumatic.

“The worst part is nobody had anything to wipe my face with,” she said. She managed to find some newspapers before paramedics arrived. The paramedics gave her towels and water.

Police have a photo of a "person of interest" from security footage, but he has not been identified.

This woman's story is horrifying, but we can't help but giggle because in the words of Frank Reynolds, "Poop is funny."
