• Throwing an Object at a Car—7:25 p.m.—Ocean Avenue— “We did not get any calls of a “shooting” this weekend, but on 12/27/2020 at about 7:25pm, we received a call from a person who said that their car had been hit by an unknown type liquid while driving on Ocean Avenue,” wrote Seal Beach Police Lt. Nick Nicholas in a Dec. 28 email to the Sun.
