Homeless Man Drags Woman In Road, Dumps Bucket Of Hot Diarrhea On Her

Heidi Van Tassel was attacked by a homeless man in April who dumped a bucket of liquid human feces over her head.

Los Angeles, CA – Heidi Van Tassel said she will never forget the face of the homeless man who dumped a bucket of hot diarrhea over her, and that’s good because he is back out wandering on the streets again.

The incident occurred when Van Tassel was getting into her car, parked on Hollywood Boulevard near the Hollywood Walk of Fame, after dinner at a Thai restaurant with friends in April, KNBC reported.

That’s when a homeless man ran across Hollywood Boulevard and pulled Van Tassel out of her car.

The six-foot-two-inch man dragged Van Tassel into the middle of the street and then dumped a bucket of feces on her, KNBC reported.

Public records confirmed the woman’s account.

"It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes," Van Tassel told KNBC. "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."

Van Tassel was taken to the hospital and underwent tests for infectious diseases; however, she will have to go back and be retested every three months.

"It was all inside my car because it was so much. He just kept pouring it and splattering it all over me," Van Tassel explained.

Van Tassel told KNBC that the Los Angeles Police Department said they would investigate the crime, but that they haven’t returned her calls since the incident.

She said police and local businesses have security video footage that captured the attack on her but claimed none of them would release it.

"It's so traumatic. The PTSD that I'm dealing with is beyond anything that I've ever felt," Van Tassel told KNBC. "There needs to be some kind of help for the victims of these crimes."

The homeless man – later identified as Jere Blessings - was arrested and charged with battery.

He was described in public records as transient who suffered from schizophrenia and psychotic disorders, KNBC reported.

Blessings was initially taken to jail, but then the judge sent him to a residential facility for people with mental health issues for two months.

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office told KNBC on Monday that is back out on the street again.

"He doesn't need jail time. He needs mental health care," Van Tassel said. "I have empathy for him. Because he needs help."

She’s worried that he could do something worse to somebody else.

"I will never, ever, forget his face," Van Tassel told KNBC. "What’s the next thing he’s going to do somebody? If he would’ve had a knife, for sure he would’ve stabbed me."

I have no sympathy for people that have created a liberal hellhole, then cry when something like this happens. I can guarantee she's a liberal. Conservative women know better than to wander alone in those areas. take a look at the video in this article I am posting. this is not an isolated event. Over 9800 of these just last year, in this hellhole.

Welcome to the utopia created by liberals across the land. For those of you who live in San Francisco, just wait for your turn. You elected the new DA who won't prosecute these type of crimes so live with the results.

Something missing like the color of the man. This is the reverse the role comment.

Need to reopen mental hospitals for folks like this who cannot exist outside of them. Or perhaps create mental help villages?

A steaming bucket of diarrhoea dumped over your head. That metaphorically represents the entire sociopolitical situation there doesn’t it?

Jere Blessings; there is little hope for a person in this state of mind. This is mayhem running loose on the streets who will eventually get killed when he pours shit on the wrong person and they end his existence.

Just reading about this makes me want to throw up. How disgusting. She is way to lenient on him. I’d go Marcellus Wallace in his ass.

I tend to agree that guy doesn’t belong in jail but I be damn if he should be walking the streets where he can hurt someone else. The trauma this lady went through and continues to go through and they let the guy out because they have no place for him. Then you a handful of crazy people in Congress that are more worried about impeaching Trump than passing laws to help people out like in this case.

I had to open this story to see if it was California, Washington or Colorado. All the bastions of Democratic leftist socialism.

Ugh, I couldn't read the whole thing. But I had to stop completely at:

"He doesn't need jail time. He needs mental health care," Van Tassel said. "I have empathy for him. Because he needs help."

He needs JAIL. Stop coddling these evil people! That's part of the problem. EVERYTHING is blamed on "mental illness." BULL!

Hey lady, like the bumper sticker says, "Shit Happens." Did you vote for Newcomb for governor? Then you've got no one to blame but yourself.

He doesn't need jail time or mental health care, he needs a bullet in his head. Same as you'd do for a rabid animal.

Hilarious that all you folks are making this political and blaming liberals? Guess you forgot that Ronald reagon passed laws that gave the mentally ill autonomy, taking away their family members rights to intervene in their lives w out permission of people who are to crazy to give permission....all the while cutting the very funding needed to try and keep them off streets and in the care of dr.s. the republican party has failed us dramatically in regards to mental health care, and now, wants to blame liberals for the problems it created. Read some history...look at the laws.

If you lived in a state that allowed you to carry a gun you could have SHOT him for assaulting you.

I think he should be put in a mental hospital, then tried for attempted murder. 🤬

I’d be in jail because I’d beat his ass with an aluminum baseball bat.

Keep electing the liberals and things like this will continue to happen. They fight more for the rights of criminals and illegals than they do for honest, hard working, law abiding citizens.

The liberals got rid of all the good mental health facilities. They thought they were cruel. Many of these people want to be in a controlled environment but there is no place for them to go but the streets. I'm so sorry for this woman. That is very traumatic.
