MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A peculiar crime popped up no fewer than three times on a Germantown Crime social media page.

Several residents reported seeing teenagers throw eggs from moving cars.

"Kids just can't go around throwing eggs at other people's houses," said resident Hannah Griffith.

First, in the 2300 block of Langsingwood Road, someone reportedly threw an egg at a home and hit the floor-sander a resident was using at the time.

Then, a bicyclist was hit with an egg while riding near the intersection of Kimbrough Road and Dogwood Road.

Most recently, someone targeted another cyclist at Kimbrough Road and Farmington Road.

All of the locations are within just a few square miles of one another.

"Even if it's just an egg, you can still hurt somebody with it," said Griffith.

After the three separate incidents, police made a few arrests.

Officers took three teenagers into custody for throwing eggs at a bicyclist on the bike path on Farmington and Kimbrough Roads.

Though throwing eggs at a person is technically classified as an assault charge, some said this is just a case of kids goofing off.

"We all did stupid things when we were younger," said resident Roderick Williams. "Just kids being kids."
