From the Daily News:
A boozed-up homeless man has been the bane of a Queens neighborhood, urinating and defecating in public and exposing himself in front of children, fed up locals said on Wednesday.
No one knows the name of the destitute man who locals said speaks Polish and loiters around Benninger Playground in Ridgewood. Neighbors charge his vulgar behavior is not safe for kids.
"He drinks so much, he doesn't know where he is," said Henry Valdes, 48. "He'll just stand up and pull his pants down."
Valdes, who has a 10-year-old daughter, said he has made several calls about the obscene behavior to community leaders.
But unless the man is caught in the act, he cannot be arrested, officials said.
The vagrant has also caused problems for city parks workers, who said every morning they have to clean up a corner of the playground he uses as a toilet, and sometimes sanitize the excrement-covered benches.
It doesn't sound like it would take much effort to "catch him in the act".
