HONOLULU (AP) - A tourist is asking the public for help finding the culprits she said threw a breadfruit through a bus window, leaving her face bloodied and bruised in Hawaii.

Valerie Zaugg of Utah was sitting on a tour bus leaving the Polynesian Cultural Center when a heavy breadfruit the size of a baseball crashed through a window and hit her in the face, she said.

A shard of glass went in her eye, she said.

The registered nurse believes her nose was broken and some bones around her eye were fractured during the incident, two Hawaii TV stations reported Sunday.

Before the incident, she had asked a family to switch seats with her, Zaugg said.

Had they not, a small child with the family could have been sitting in the seat where she was hit, she said.

Zaugg filed a police report, but as of Sunday, police had not arrested a suspect.
