The Morning Blotter: Police Investigating Belltown Egging As Hate Crime

Police are investigating a Belltown egging as a possible hate crime after an apartment manager was pelted with eggs outside of her building last week.

According to a police report, the woman was walking outside of her apartment building in the 300 block of Blanchard at about 1:15 on March 15th when she heard a man yell “nigger bitch” and felt two eggs hit her on the head and shoulder.

The woman told police she believed the eggs were thrown from an apartment in her building, but didn’t know which one. According to the report, the woman also told officers she is “not very popular in the building” because “she is in charge of enforcing building rules”

The report indicates police are investigating the incident as a bias crime.
