Man Accused Of Smearing Feces In Woman's Shorts Says 'God Did It'

Ekwan Hill, 42, faces charges for not one but two feces attacks against women in Manhattan on Monday.

A man accused of attacking not one but two women with feces in New York City last week told reporters "God did it" when asked about his motive.

Ekwan Hill, 42, proclaimed those three words Friday after being taken into custody for assault and forcible touching charges following Monday's attacks on Manhattan's Upper East Side, the New York Daily News reported.

"Why the filth? It's a Farrakhan thing," he added, referencing the religious leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.

Ekwan Hill, 42, is seen speaking to reporters after his arrest for allegedly attacking two women with feces Monday.

Hill was arrested a day after authorities released surveillance video capturing what was the second of two filthy attacks within a four-hour period.

In the second assault, a man was seen grabbing a young woman on East 74th Street from behind before shoving a gloved, feces-covered hand down her shorts. He then ran away, discarding the glove as he fled.

Earlier in the day, a 33-year-old woman reported a man throwing feces in her face along East 91st Street.

A tip to Crime Stoppers led officers Thursday night to a Brooklyn homeless shelter, where they arrested Hill, Pix 11 reported.
