A handful of Narragansett residents literally have to collect the pieces after someone throws stones through their home and car windows.
NARRAGANSETT, RI (WLNE) – A handful of Narragansett residents literally pick up the pieces after someone threw rocks through their home and car windows.
At least two houses and one car broke the windows on Sachem Road early Tuesday morning.
“We were woken up by a crash in which the house seemed to have run down around us,” said resident Peter Rakus, as it sounded.
Between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Tuesday, a giant stone came through the window of his house.
“Not just broke the window – it broke the screen, it broke the crank,” said Rakus.
About five doors down the same thing happened to her front window.
“I said, ‘You have to kid me,” remembered homeowner Rosemary Baptiste when she discovered the damage the next morning.
Residents said the police told them it might have been a group of children. But the street has no street lights and the target houses had no cameras.
In both cases, local residents say the police believe the stone used came from their own yards.
“It scares you of the vivid daylight, not to mention the money that comes out of your pocket,” said Rakus.
In Baptiste’s case, she was a beach stone that she kept on her porch and that her grandchild had collected.
“Whoever did that came on my porch and picked up the stone and stood on my porch and threw it through our window,” said Baptiste. “So that was the most disturbing part of it.”
That night, a car was also targeted down the street. The owner didn’t notice it until later that day on Tuesday.
“I didn’t even notice, walked in, looked in my rearview mirror and said, ‘Oh my god what
Hell! “said Lisa Lessmann.
Now she can only get a replacement at the end of the week, which she can no longer do
drive a lot.
“That was kind of malicious. This is the people’s livelihood, ”said Lessmann. “Fortunately, it won’t rain until then.”
The police have not found the culprit but believe this was an isolated incident.
