Williamston police officers responded to a call after someone threw a rock through a front window of a house on Williams Street early Sept. 22 at 2:30 a.m.

This is the 11th case of property damage this year in Williamston. No subjects have been arrested on suspicion of committing the crime. The case is pending further investigative leads.

According to Williamston police chief Bob Young, the victim, Regina Ann Wilson, 49, reported hearing a crash sound at 1:30, but the call was made about half an hour later when the victim’s husband entered the living room to discover a large rock in the seat of a chair near the window.

Wilson said her son may know who is responsible for the damage. The teenager told police he believed the offenders were two people who have had recent problems with him and his girlfriend.

“This is a pretty specific case,” the Chief said. “The houses involved have had multiple problems before.”

A witness reported seeing two people that looked to be between 16 and 20 years old riding BMX style bicycles down the center of the street from the West.

“I heard a noise sounding like a stick breaking and I looked out the window to see two figures with dark hair and black clothing on bicycles with flashing red lights,” the witness said. “I couldn’t tell if they were male or female.”

In addition to the damage to the window, the victim reported a destroyed lamp. At this time, property damage is estimated to be $800.
