MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami Police are reminding vandals who reportedly threw eggs and other items from a Miami high-rise that their actions are not only illegal but potentially deadly.
The incidents reportedly took place at the One Miami building in Downtown Miami.
Gwen Pepin said he was a witness to some of the attacks, and the ammo is not always eggs. “Eggs most of the time, but you have tomatoes, and you have a silver wrench,” he said.
Pepin said he and his daughter were nearly hit while they were taking a walk on the streets of Downtown Miami. “Two, three times easy, during the week, we have that since one year,” he said.
Michael Straks also said he has seen the objects fall from the building. “I have seen them fall in front of me as I’m walking,” he said.
“I definitely think it’s intentional,” said Marco Grossing. “Some guy got nailed with an egg on top of his head, actually. The police were called.”
Miami Police said no official reports were filed. However, they did send a letter Tuesday to area buildings, which read in part, “If we find anyone in the act of throwing anything out of their dwellings, they will be arrested. This is a very serious offense and very dangerous … Please understand the seriousness of your acts and that we will go after you with the full extent of the law.”
Lawyers from One Miami’s condo association sent a letter in May declaring that the throwing of eggs and other things was a danger to life and property and one reported incident “involved a rock smashing through the rear window of a resident’s vehicle.”
“One egg fell here, just close like that,” Pepin said as he described how an egg nearly hit his daughter. “Just close to the head of my daughter. I was very upset.”
