Hit it Hard Enough, It’ll Break!

Laurens Police were dispatched to a Garlington Street apartment at 3:46 Saturday morning on a vandalism report. Someone had reportedly struck the apartment window of a resident, doing an estimated $300 in damage. A man had reportedly begun beating on the window, calling the name of a woman who lives inside, hitting it progressively harder until it broke. A violation of protection order was signed against the man back in December. Additional charges are now pending.
