More than 100 stealth egg attacks baffle one Euclid homeowner and police (photos and video) EUCLID, Ohio -- An 85-year-old Euclid man’s home has become the target of mysterious egging attacks that began in March 2014 and haven’t stopped. The continuous onslaught of eggs have baffled police, neighbours and local government officials who have tried and failed to identify the source of the attacks that have ruined the man’s home and kept his family on edge. “The accuracy is phenomenal” Albert Clemens Sr. said. “Almost every time it’s nice weather, they launch five or six eggs, and they almost invariably hit the front door.” Clemens’ green two-storey house sits on the corner of Wilmore Avenue and East 210th street. He and his wife bought the home as newlyweds about 60 years ago. Though his wife has since passed away, Clemens still lives there with his 49 year old daughter and 51 year old son. The house has been pelted with eggs several times a week -- sometimes more than once a day -- for the past 5 years. The attacks always happen after dark and last around 10 minutes each. The family has been awoken as early as 2 AM by what sounds like the crack of a gunshot against the aluminum siding of the front door. Clemens and the police believe the eggs are being launched from a block or two away. The siding on the front of Clemens’ home is destroyed and splattered with dried egg residue that stripped off the paint. Other than a few rogue eggs that hit nearby homes, no other neighbours have been targeted. “Somebody is deeply, deeply angry at somebody in that household for some reason” Euclid lt. Mitch Houser said. Winter offered a short respite for the family, as the egging became less frequent during the cold weather. But both Clemens and police anticipate the attacks to pick back up as the snow and ice thaw. This is an unsolved mystery Euclid police have not taken the investigation lightly. They have spent a year doing undercover stakeouts, canvassing the neighbourhood and even sending eggshells for testing. The department’s entire community policing unit was dedicated to tracking down the Eggers at one point.
