Kids find real eyeball outside restaurant

Posted: Updated:

Police are investigating after some kids found an eyeball near the Gresham Station shopping center Thursday night.

Gresham police said the eye was found inside a transparent medicine bottle in a parking lot near Red Robin. They said it looks like a real eyeball, but it is unclear if it is animal or human.

The bottle was next to a pair of shattered eyeglasses, shower gel and a lighter.

Brittany Hancock works at Red Robin and said a group of kids on a scavenger hunt for a birthday party found it. They alerted restaurant workers who called police.

"It just broke my heart,” Hancock said. “Because either way, if it was an animal or a person, it's just hard to think of how to feel. It was just so bizarre."

Police said they have not received reports of a missing eyeball.

In the meantime, the eye has been taken to the medical examiner to figure out where it came from.
