Police Dispatch

Nailed! (But not the Culprits)

Foothills Area

Nov. 7, 7:15 p.m.

A nice north-side nail parlor was hit by a completely random egg attack perpetrated by some very young kids who sidestepped capture, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The man who owned Paulene's Nail's, 8340 N. Thornydale Road, told a sheriff's deputy that all had been "business as usual" in the salon early that evening when suddenly an elementary-age child in a red shirt flung open the door and burst inside, flinging raw eggs into the room. Meanwhile a hail of eggs also hit the windows from outside, thrown by at least one other kid. The reportee said the mini-miscreants were certainly no older than 10—possibly just 6 years old.

He said that nothing in his place was permanently damaged—it only needed to be "wiped up"—and nobody was injured, although he himself had been struck by one egg, which broke on his forearm.

The crime had apparently been abetted by an older individual acting as getaway driver, since the kids reportedly boarded a black SUV after running away. The owner of a neighboring business said he thought he'd seen an adult female with them.

The salon owner said that no problems with customers, or anything else out of the ordinary, had happened earlier. The kids remained at large at the time of the report.
