A man continues to struggle several weeks after being knocked unconscious by an egg thrown from a passing vehicle in Nanaimo.
The victim and several friends were standing at a bus stop on Uplands Drive around 10:45 p.m. on Feb. 25 when he was hit in the head, according to an RCMP media release.
Police arrived to find the 37-year-old being attended to by paramedics, who transported him to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for treatment.
Witnesses told police the egg was thrown from the side passenger window of a small dark coloured vehicle. The victim has limited memory of the incident and continues to have difficulty with his thought process, police said.
“We believe the person who throw the egg probably didn’t intend to cause injury and may have no idea what actually happened. With that in mind, this individual and those in the vehicle, need to step up, take responsible for their actions and call the police,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.
Anyone with information about the incident can call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file #2022-6661.
