We propose a phenomenological model for the scattering of particles on space-time defects in a treatment that maintains Lorentz invariance on the average. The local defects considered here cause a stochastic violation of momentum conservation. The scattering probability is parametrized in the density of defects and the distribution of the momentum that a particle can obtain when scattering on the defect. We identify the most promising observable consequences and derive constraints from existing data.
