Police in hunt for 'mad pooper' runner wreaking havoc on street

We've all seen Paula Radcliffe spending a penny on the street during 'that' marathon.

It wasn't exactly appealing to watch a woman literally take a shit on the pavement, but marathons are long, and she's a dedicated sportswoman so we let it slide.

But taking a street-dump on your casual daily jog?! No. Unacceptable.

Police in Colorado Springs in America are currently on the hunt for a perpetrator of such acts, after a family complained that a runner was dropping the kids off on their lawn.

The unidentified woman has been spotted multiple times pulling down her pants numerous times to defecate, even in front of children.

She was once caught by Cathy Budde, one of the local residents, who said to her, 'are you serious? Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids!?'. The mystery pooper replied, 'yeah, sorry' and ran away.

To add insult to injury, she even brings loo roll to clean herself up, and left it there for someone else to dispose of.

The police are now looking for her on possible charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.

Sergeant Johnathan Sharketti said of the criminal, who is being dubbed the 'mad pooper':

‘It’s abnormal, it’s not something I’ve seen in my career. For someone to repeatedly do such a thing… it’s uncharted territory for me.’

Signs have been put up around the town urging people to name and shame the mad pooper, or for her to come forward (or at least stop doing the deed).
