Someone threw rocks at the window during school vacation last week, leaving a six-by-six inch hole in the glass, causing more than $20,000 worth of damage.

From the outside, the window was supposed to be protected by plexi-glass, but now that protective barrier also has holes and cracks in four spots.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newton Police at (617)-796-2121.
