S.I. man smears feces on ex's door, sets it ablaze: officials



A Staten Island man allegedly tried to burn down his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s apartment after smearing his feces on its door and setting a fire in front of it, authorities said yesterday.

Rasheen Harrison, 24, allegedly went to his ex’s apartment at around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, where he kicked her door and accused her of stealing his cell phone, court papers show.

“I’m going to set your house on fire and this whole building down with you in it,” he said, according to the documents.

Police arrived to find that Harrison had stripped naked. There were no injuries to the five people in the apartment, which included two children and reportedly his ex.

Harrison was arrested and taken first to a police station, but was reportedly taken to Bellevue Hospital for psychiatric evaluation after he urinated in his cell then smeared feces the walls. Among the charges he faces are second degree arson and criminal mischief.
