Ohio home pelted by eggs for a year, police can’t crack case
EUCLID, Ohio (AP) – An 85-year-old man says his suburban Cleveland home has been pelted with eggs several times a week for a year, but police haven’t cracked the unusual case.
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports Euclid police suspect the eggs are launched a block or two away. Homeowner Albert Clemens Sr. says whoever is responsible has “phenomenal” accuracy, launching five or six at a time and often hitting the front door.
He says the after-dark attacks sometimes sound like gunshots as eggs splatter on the aluminum siding, creating a residue that strips the paint. Clemens says he used to clean up but quit because it happens so often.
Officers have done stakeouts, questioned neighbors, installed a surveillance camera and even tested eggshells as evidence but haven’t determined a suspect or motive.
