Members of the public in one Osaka town have been living in fear recently after a gang took to cruising the streets at night and pelting pedestrians with eggs from the window of a moving car, at one time even stocking up on as many as 50 eggs.
Police in Osaka’s Suminoe-ku announced on April 30 that they had detained three high school students and one company employee, all male and aged between 17 and 19, on charges of assault.
Police began receiving reports from locals over the past two weeks of a group of males throwing eggs from the window of a moving car, with one 23-year-old woman taking direct hits to the head and back as she cycled home from her part-time job late one night.
Police eventually tracked down the gang and brought them in for questioning, whereupon it was discovered that on at least one occasion the young men had purchased 50 eggs before hitting the streets to ensure they had plenty of ammo to sling at members of the public.
“It was funny to see people’s shocked reactions,” one of the boys reportedly admitted to police. “We got about six people on the 20th alone.”
