Police pursue portable-potty peeper

Boulder Weekly Staff

police are investigating an incident involving a man hiding in a portable
toilet at the Hanuman Yoga Festival on Friday, June 17, near Boulder High

According to city officials, a female patron of the festival walked into a
portable toilet and told police she noticed that something was moving inside
the tank when she lifted the lid. She said she believed there might be a person inside
the toilet, so she left the portable toilet and asked a man
who was standing nearby to go in and check.

According to a city news release, the man told police that when he entered the
toilet, he did see someone inside the tank, covered in a tarp. He, too, exited
the portable toilet. A few minutes later, he heard the door lock from the
inside, the release said. A festival security supervisor waited outside for
several minutes and then saw a suspect emerge from the portable toilet. The
supervisor tried to detain the suspect, officials said, but he ran away, covered
in feces. 

The suspect is described as a white male, about 20 years old, approximately
6’4” to 6’8”, thin build, with short dark hair and wearing dark gray sweatpants
and no shirt or shoes.

Witnesses say the suspect had several cuts on his back and legs. The suspect
was also wearing leather bracelets on each wrist, officials said. At least one
witness believes the suspect may use the name “Sky,” and told police that he
may be a transient.

Police are looking for the suspect, but also want to talk to any witnesses from
the Hanuman Yoga Festival who may have seen the incident. Anyone with information
is asked to contact Det. Jeremy Frenzen at 303-441-1890. Those who have
