SEATTLE, June 3 (UPI) -- A Seattle woman apparently upset about being woken up by runners raising money for cancer expressed her frustration by tossing garbage at them from her fifth-floor apartment.

The woman threw items including a frozen chicken breast, cans and a trash bag containing 5 to 10 pounds of kitty litter at people who were participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Sunday morning.

The unidentified woman also threw a green "superfood" drink that hit a man in his 60s. A 13-year-old girl was struck by the frozen chicken breast and left with a welt, according to the Seattle Police Department.

When police went to the woman's apartment, she said she'd "worked a long shift and was angry that the runners had woken her from her slumber."

She was arrested and booked for assault and a misdemeanor trespassing warrant.
