Rickmansworth Running Sisters attacked by youths throwing eggs
Members of a running club in Rickmansworth were attacked with eggs by a group of youths in a car last night.
The Rickmansworth Running Sisters were enjoying their regular Tuesday night run when three women were hit by eggs, thrown from a moving car.
Rose Goodchild, from the club, said: "At about 8.30pm we were at the top of Field Way, I was in a group of six and the girls in front were running ahead.
"We saw a black Vauxhall Corsa and three or four youths in it were laughing and jeering, I saw a hand come out and my friend said something has hit me.
"I looked a her and saw that she was covered in egg. When we got back to the club house in Mill End discovered two more runners had been hit as well."
Later, at 10pm, a group of women was attacked by youths throwing eggs and stones from a car.
Mandy Williams was celebrating her birthday with six friends at Zaza's in the High Street. As they left the restaurant, a car full of young men pulled up and attacked them.
She said: "We'd had such a lovely time and a laugh, and all of a suddenly a black car with five young guys in it pulled up and they started pelting us with stones and eggs.
"They were laughing and obviously thought it was funny to throw things at innocent people who were just out celebrating a birthday."
Ms Williams' said she was in a lot of pain from her rib after the attack, and has been told it needs to be examined by a doctor.
She added: "It was dangerous and bloody stupid. There was an elderly couple behind us and my sister in law has MS, she could have fallen over and banged her head on the kerb."
