A woman in Stockton, Calif. had to be hospitalized after someone threw a pumpkin at her from a moving car.

Investigators are not treating this as a Thanksgiving night prank - they're treating the case as an assault with a deadly weapon.

The woman, 51, was struck in the chest during the drive-by assault. She was just walking across the street when she was attacked.

Stockton police say they're looking for a white four-door sedan in connection with the assault.
