Person with Crohn’s disease denied bathroom access
- A manager at a store in the 00-100 block of Ogden Avenue called police after a person who claimed to be suffering from Crohn’s disease yelled at the her after she denied them access to the store’s private restroom, about noon on Feb. 11. After the person asked for permission to use the bathroom, the store’s manager said it was private and told the person to go to another store in the strip mall. The Crohn’s disease sufferer grew irate and threatened to defecate on the floor of the store. The store manager told police she was concerned because the incident startled customers. She feared future action the person may take against the business.
