Pineapples and mangoes hurled at unsuspecting motoristsIn the early hours of the morning in the city of Gympie -two hours north of Brisbane- a number cars were being pelted with fruit. Windscreens were smashed, occupants terrified. Regional Queensland police have been investigating.
Stephen Fitzpatrick was driving to work about 4:30am on Monday when his windscreen was smashed. "I got hit by a mango, and it smashed my windscreen. It was lucky no-one got hurt," he said. Mr Fitzpatrick said he had no doubt that the fruit was thrown and did not fall from a tree.
The damage was so severe he had to pull over. "A couple of minutes later another bloke pulled up beside me and his car got hit by a pineapple," Mr Fitzpatrick said.
Gympie Police have told the ABC that a 15-year-old boy has been dealt with under the provisions of the Juvenile Justices Act. Another youth is being questioned by police and investigations are continuing to identify and locate a third individual.
