TOKYO — Tokyo police have arrested four male teenagers on suspicion of damaging a taxi by throwing eggs at it, police officials said Thursday. The suspects, aged 17 to 19, allegedly threw eggs at the taxi that was stopped at a red light, from the seventh floor of an apartment building in Minato Ward, Tokyo, early on March 17.
One suspect, an 18-year-old university student, used to be a pitcher in high school. The suspects formed what they called "rantoukai," or egg-throwing group, and repeatedly threw eggs at cars, the police said. A number of taxi drivers have reported similar "eggings" in the same district since late last year, they said. (Kyodo News)
