TWO women were egged while out running earlier this week.

At about 8.15pm on Monday, the victims, both in their early twenties, were running down Mill Street, Eynsham on the opposite side of the road to the Post Office, when a light-coloured van drove past and an egg was thrown at them.

The egg hit one of the victims in the face, causing injury and swelling to her face, and a nosebleed.

She did not require hospital treatment.
