JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — A woman from Jamestown has been accused of relieving herself at the door of a business in the city.

Officers responded to the downtown business on Thursday, shortly before 12:30 p.m. According to a police report from Jamestown officers, Jennifer Allen, 38, was accused of the act, in which officials say she defecated on the doorstep.
