Staten Island man sets ex-girlfriend’s apartment on fire during ‘fecal rampage’
A pregnant woman in Staten Island had an undeniably “crappy” Wednesday morning, according to local police. Around 5:30 a.m., 24-year-old Rasheed (Illuminati) Harrison, her ex-boyfriend, showed up outside her apartment door, stripped naked, and defecated, SI Live reports. Harrison then smeared the excrement on the apartment door and set it — and his clothes — on fire.
Court papers show that when he lit the fire, he cursed profusely, and said, “I’m going to set your house on fire and this whole building down with you in it.”
Neighbors heard him yelling, “I’m the devil!” in the process of spreading his excrement on the door.
The six-months pregnant woman and her two young children were inside the apartment when Harrison exacted his revenge. Neighbors said that Harrison and the woman fought frequently, and Harrison told police later that she had stolen his cell phone.
He was caught (somewhat) red-handed police noted that when they arrived, not only was Harrison still naked, but he “had the evidence all over his hands.”
Harrison was taken to the police station (where officers say he defecated a second time) and charged with second-degree arson, third- and fourth-degree criminal mischief, five counts each of second-degree reckless endangerment and third-degree menacing, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
