In another chapter of "What's wrong with kids today?," a group of three boys were arrested in Lancaster on Monday after one of them egged a homeless woman on the street.

The 60-year-old victim was praying on a sidewalk near Sierra Highway and Jackson Avenue around 1 p.m. when one of the boys chucked eggs at her, according to the L.A. Times. One of the eggs struck her chest and although she said it hurt, she didn't want any medical care for it.

An L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. deputy saw the whole ordeal go down and arrested the egging teenager, who is a minor and has not been named. Two other boys were found in a car nearby waiting for the teen and were arrested as well. Officers found in the car masks and what the Times called an "Airsoft-type pellet gun." This led authorities to believe that it wasn't the first time these boys have messed with folks.

The teens are all being held without bail at the Sylmar Detention Facility for suspicion of felony assault and conspiracy charges.
