WILKES-BARRE — Police are searching for a man they say defecated outside of a business before smearing the waste on the door handles.

The 55-year-old owner of the business, on South Washington Street, called police Monday to report recording the incident on his surveillance camera.

The incident occurred at about 3 a.m. Saturday.

Police say the man defecated at the entrance of the business before fleeing, and then returned a short time later and smeared feces on the door handles.

No other information was available.
