Police suspect foul play after woman gets stuck to toilet seat in superglue ‘prank’
Officers said CCTV footage suggested no one could have applied the adhesive other than the victim herself
A woman in the US has been stuck to a toilet seat with superglue in what was evidently a cruel prank – or so police thought.
Emergency services were called to a Home Depot store in Banks Crossing, Georgia at Thanksgiving to help remove the woman from the seat, but were unable to do so inside the shop.
The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, had to be taken to a nearby hospital in Gainesville for the procedure to be carried out.
Banks County Sheriff’s investigators said three other toilet seats in the bathroom were also smeared with adhesive, and that the store manager had found a bottle of quick-setting Loctite GO2 – a construction-strength superglue – at the scene of the incident.
That could have been the end of the story, had investigators not then reviewed the store’s CCTV cameras to see if they could identify the inconsiderate prankster involved.
According to the Augusta Chronicle, a sheriff’s report said that no one else had entered the women’s bathroom in the period immediately before the event.
Deputy Sheriff Carissa McFaddin told the newspaper: “There is no evidence to show that someone did it besides who was in there.”
Police did not speculate as to why the woman might have stuck herself to a toilet seat, given the inevitable pain and embarrassment involved. Investigators said there was insufficient evidence to charge anyone in relation to the incident.
