Colorado cops have a Porta-Pervert on their hands.

Police in Boulder, Colo., are hunting for a Peeping Tom who hid in the basin of a portable toilet at a weekend yoga festival before being spotted and taking off “covered in feces.”

A woman at the Hanuman Festival, a yoga and music festival, was using the toilet Friday when she suspected someone was hiding in the bowl under a tarp, Boulder’s Daily Camera reported.

The spooked yogi told a pal, who saw the tarp move and went to grab a security guard.

When the friend left the toilet, he heard it lock from the inside, the Camera reported.

The guard waited outside until a lanky white man with no shoes or shirt came out, covered in poop.

The suspect made a run for it and got away, cops said.

Witnesses said the man was between 6-feet-4 and 6-feet-8 with short dark hair and leather cuffs on both wrists.

He fits the description of a well-known Boulder bum known as “Sky,” cops said.

Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel told the Camera that cops are baffled as to how he squeezed his big frame into the tank.

If found, he’ll face charges of criminal attempt to make unlawful sexual contact.  Read more

Cameras mounted on cars and tricycles had been taking pictures in streets across Bangalore.  continue reading at bbc
