Man Topples Portable Toilet Over After Trapping Woman Inside
A Missouri man has been arrested and charged with pushing over a portable toilet after he trapped a woman inside at a St. Louis rail station.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Christopher Ewing, 40, was arraigned on Monday on felony counts of kidnapping, attempted kidnapping and assault. His bail has been set at $75,000.
The attack occurred at a Metrolink parking lot after Ewing punched a woman that was coming out of a portable toilet. He then locked the woman inside the toilets and toppled it over as the woman started to call 911.
Police state that he then left and tried to force another woman to give him a ride in her truck. Apparently, he dragged the second woman by her hair and neck as she was exiting her car and attempted to force her back inside to give him a ride. Luckily, a passerby intervened.
Upon his arrest, police questioned Ewing who claimed that he only punched the woman because she had hit him first.
