2 arrested for allegedly throwing ‘sock bombs’ at cars

Two juveniles have been arrested and charged with terroristic acts for allegedly throwing rock-filled socks at cars in Cobb County, police said Friday.

The two suspects, whose names were not released due to their ages, are accused of throwing the "sock bombs" at cars along Kennesaw Due West Road, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported earlier this week. No one was injured by the flying debris, but several cars were damaged.

Allen Ashwege told Channel 2 Action News his car was hit twice over the weekend. When he stopped, he found a sand-filled sock embedded in his front grill, and several other “sock bombs” along the road.

“When I saw the damage I thought we were lucky it didn’t hit the windshield or even the side window where my son was driving,” Ashwege told Channel 2.

Ashwege and others reported the crimes to police, who arrested two juveniles and were questioning a third Friday.
