For the second time in less than a week, an "egging" attack has been reported in Fairfield.
A Vermont Avenue man said his car was egged by a group of five teens traveling in a silver Jeep Wrangler last Wednesday morning as he was driving on South Benson Road.
According to the report, the paint on the man's Honda Civic was damaged and he also told police the he suffered a small cut on his arm from the shattering egg shells.
The incident came two days after two local teens were charged with using eggs to bombard a police officer and gas station attenedant.
A 16-year-old was charged with criminal mischief, interfering with police and breach of peace after he and another teen threw eggs at an attendant at Fairfield Mobil, 2093 Post Road, and a police officer early Monday morning.
According to the report, the gas station attendant said two people -- one wearing ski mask and one with his face covered by a bandana -- looked in the store window just before 4 a.m. He immediately called police, but the two youths came in the store and began hurling eggs at the employee. When the first officer arrived, he saw the two running from the store and ordered them to stop. Instead, they threw eggs at the officer, and ran off down the Post Road.
One teen was found behind St. Thomas Church and was released to his mother's custody after being charged. He is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on July 23. The other teen has not yet been located and the incident remains under investigation.
