Sydney socialite and publicist Roxy Jacenko has called on her 250,000 Instagram followers to help identify a female jogger who’s been captured on CCTV defecating in the gutter outside her Paddington business.
Jacenko posted security footage of the woman defecating in Watson Street just after 6am on Monday and also after 6.30am on Thursday.
AAP has spoken to a neighbouring resident who says there’s been four or five human stools deposited in the same spot over the past three weeks.
“One is fair enough if you’re caught short – but four or five I think is too much,” the resident, who asked not to be named, told AAP.
“The poos have come more consistently recently. But I hope the woman isn’t shamed as she could possibly have a medical condition.”
Jacenko wasn’t cutting the jogger any slack, however.
“What an absolute disgrace you are, doing this in our residential street where we have a primary school and multiple residences,” she wrote on Instagram on Monday night.
“What has the world come to.”
A NSW Police spokeswoman said the force was aware of the “circumstances” but had not yet received an official complaint.
Police officers had to attend Jacenko’s Paddington business, Sweaty Betty, in mid-2017 following reports of malicious damage.
Red and blue paint along with eggs had been thrown at the building, a police spokeswoman told AAP at the time.
That attack came a few weeks after Jacenko’s husband, convicted insider trader Oliver Curtis, was released from Cooma prison.
Sweaty Betty’s offices were also attacked in April 2017 when an unknown assailant poured foul-smelling brown sludge, believed to be faeces, in the mailbox.
