Police are investigating at least three egg-throwing attacks that occurred this weekend in Brooklyn.

The NYPD says a group of what appeared to be teen boys walked up behind a 50-year-old woman Sunday afternoon on 38th Street and 15th Avenue and threw eggs at her, hitting her in the head. The suspect said nothing and ran away.

The woman wasn't injured and refused medical attention, police said.

In a separate incident Saturday nearby on 38th Street, a man was also hit with an egg throw by what also appeared to be a group of teens. Later that same evening, an egg was thrown at a wall inside the Sanz Synagogue on Dahill Road.

No one was injured in the incidents.

It's unclear whether any of the incidents are related. Police say the Hate Crime Unit is investigating the attacks.
