A night near the Hollywood Walk of Fame would change a woman’s life, as she was getting into her car and a homeless man sprinted across Hollywood Boulevard toward her.

Heidi Van Tassel was parked in Hollywood after having a pleasant evening out with friends at an authentic Thai restaurant. Suddenly a man randomly pulled her out of the car, dragged her out to the middle of the street, and dumped a bucket of feces on her head, Van Tassel said and public records confirm.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes,” Van Tassel said. “Paramedics who came to treat me said there was so much of it on me, that it looked like the man was saving it up for a month.”

The report states that Van Tassel was rushed to the hospital and tested for infectious diseases. She now must be retested every three months.

Additional details were provided in a separate report by the Washington Examiner:  “Police arrested Jere Blessing in the attack and charged him with battery. Records show Blessing, who had been living on the streets, showed signs of “schizophrenia and psychotic disorders.” He was released from a mental institution in August, the station reported.”
