Newberg, Oregon: Last night, at 8:19 PM on Friday, January 19th, a man urinated on a house on Hoskin’s Street and then proceeded to sit upon a metal pole staked into the front yard in such a way that the pole inserted into his rectum. According to the home owner, the man did not defecate in the yard and the act may have been intended to be sexual in nature. The owners report that a white residue was found near the site. The man has been reported to police and no arrests have been made yet. He is suspected to be a homeless transient, as the house where this incident occurred is near Northside Community Church, which operates a homeless shelter.
