Could you please put this out to our community members. I have anonymized the sender. However, this kind of property damage is really dangerous and if anyone knows anything she or he can contact me or Const. Dawn Neilly at the Hintonburg Community Centre.

This is just a note to let you know that my home has been the victim of malicious damage to our front bay-window.
Since we did not hear it happen – it may have happened when we were not at home – we do not know exactly when it happened. We think the damage was caused sometime in the early weeks of August this year. Our south facing window was attacked by some form of projectile that left a 1/2 inch hole in the outer pane of our thermopane bay-window. The window itself faces the street and measures 37″ wide by 49″ high. The hole is about 2 inches from the top and about 13 1/2 inches from the left (west) side.
Since the projectile did not penetrate the inner pane of glass, we surmise that it was not caused by a bullet. We think more likely that it was caused by the pellet from some form of air gun, though we cannot be sure. In either case, the damage will necessitate the complete replacement of the window which will amount to several hundred dollars.
The incident has been reported to Const. Dawn Neilly at the local Community Police Centre (Report number 15-208693). We are concerned that it may have been caused by one of the youth that live in Champlain Park. Hopefully, this kind of damage has not been perpetrated on any other home in our community.
We would be grateful if you would pass on this information to residents of our community through the Champlain Park website so that other residents can be informed of the incident. Someone, somewhere may have knowledge of who may have been responsible. If anyone has information that could help identify the perpetrator I would be grateful if they would contact us or the Community Police Centre at 613-236-1222, ext. 5871.
