Police hunt for pumpkin throwers


Police in canton Aargau are hunting for mysterious pumpkin throwers.

Several people have reported that they’ve been attacked by flying pumpkins. One was riding a scooter when she was hit – damaging her bike.  

So far, all the attacks have been in Baden and at night. In one instance, the victim says the pumpkin was thrown from a car that was easily travelling at 100 kph, she says.

The car then turned around for another attempt – that missed too. 

In other incidents, some have been hit on the leg or body. 

The police confirm the pumpkin attacks and are following up.
