ARLINGTON, Va. (WRIC) — A disgusting and stinky situation at a Virginia park has parents baffled and outraged.

Someone is targeting a playground in Arlington, leaving feces on it.

Authorities say human waste has been found about five times in the last few months.

The person responsible is hiding the feces under a shirt or jacket. When a child or parent picks it up, they’re getting a nasty surprise.

“to defecate outside is one thing, but then in a kids park where kids can easily fall into it really shocks me,” said parent Rashon Rogers.

Officials believe it’s happening after hours in the dark. Workers have cleaned up and disinfected the area.

If caught, the person could be charged with a misdemeanor.
