An intoxicated young man who had blocked the path of a Muni bus by standing in front of it during a recent morning commute might have egged a woman minutes earlier.
About 6:55 a.m. Monday, police were called about a man preventing a bus’s movement at 33rd Avenue and Clement Street in the Outer Richmond district. Officers reportedly arrived to find two men in their late teens helping their highly intoxicated friend who was about the same age get off the street.
After detaining the men, police said, one of the officers noticed a dark-blue van with a luggage rack double-parked nearby. Only 10 minutes earlier, that officer had responded to an incident at 21st Avenue and Balboa Street involving a van with a similar description.
At that intersection, a woman reported that she was crossing 21st Avenue and noticed a dark-blue van at a stop sign then “suddenly felt something hit the side of her face.”
“When she looked at the ground, she saw an egg splattered on the sidewalk,” police said, adding that the van then drove off “with the passenger laughing.”
A witness informed officers about the van. However, the three men were not arrested. Police said they failed to contact the egged woman, who apparently wasn’t answering her phone.
