A 16-year-old Fairfield teen 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 came in the store and began to throw 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.
