HOUSTON - A Houston homeowner is hoping surveillance footage will help catch an intruder who defecated on her doorstep.
The man was seen on camera cursing and muttering Saturday morning at a home on La Branch Street on the Midtown/Museum District border.
The homeowner's daughter, who is still shaken by what she saw, did not want to be identified.
"He's mumbling and saying all this stuff getting angry," she said.
After getting notifications from the Ring doorbell app, the daughter decided to check the camera footage recorded on the device.
"Then he puts his phone down picks up an old board and hits the camera," she said.
But it wasn't until she went to the property the next day did she see what else he did -- something she'd missed on the recordings.
"That's when I saw it and I smelled it," she said. "He had pooped and peed on our gate and near the gate."
A closer look at the video showed exactly the moment it happened.
"He just pulled his pants down and started peeing on the gate then he pulled them down even further and decided to poop right next to the gate," she said. "When you're a grown adult and you poop and pee on someone's property just because, there's something wrong with that."
The house is not far from a homeless camp that neighbors believe is responsible for an increase in crime in the area.
They plan to bring it up with the mayor at a meeting next week.
