Bad Eggs In BMW Target Homeless Man In Drive-By Egging

Just before 4:45 AM this morning, a man flagged down patrol officers in 4100 block of University Way NE and reported that five minutes earlier, two men had driven by in a BMW and hurled eggs at a homeless man sleeping in the doorway of a church.

The witness told police he had seen two white males in their 20s inside the car—which he described as a silver BMW with tinted windows—but he was unable to make out the vehicle’s license plate. The witness also told police the BMW had circled the block about a half-hour before the egging incident.

The victim wasn’t injured in the incident, but showed officers where an egg had broken on his jacket.

SPD and University of Washington police searched the neighborhood for the BMW, but weren’t able to locate the suspects.

If you know anything about this incident, please give police a call at (206) 625-5011.
