IRVING PARK — A homeowner woke up to broken glass on the first floor of her home Thursday morning after someone threw a concrete planter through her window.

Someone threw the planter through the front window of a home in the 4100 Block of West Newport Avenue, shattering the window and a coffee table, said Jennifer Bryk, a police spokesperson.

The block the home is on is a residential area comprised of one-way streets. The homeowner told Block Club she’s unsure why her home was damaged like this and reported the vandalism to police at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

Bryk said it appears the planter was thrown sometime between Wednesday after 8 p.m. and when it was first reported to police on Thursday morning. The vandalism appears to be an isolated incident, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8263
