Rocks thrown through windows of Mayor Mike McGinn’s home

One of the two suspects who threw rocks through the mayor’s windows overnight waved at his wife before walking away, according to a police report about the incident. The Seattle Police Department is looking for two suspects who threw rocks through windows of Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn’s home in Greenwood early this morning, his spokesman confirmed. The windows of the mayor’s living room and dining room were broken.

A police report released today by the mayor’s office says the mayor’s wife awoke to the sound of breaking glass on the west side of her house at about 12:35 a.m. She looked out the window and one of the suspects “waved at her” before walking south on Dayton Avenue North.

The mayor’s wife called 911 and police and the mayor’s security detail responded, said spokesman Aaron Pickus. The police report said a K9 officer searched the area but couldn’t find the suspects.

Seattle Police Department spokesman Sean Whitcomb said police are investigating the incident.

No one was hurt.

The rock-throwing follows a day of protests in downtown Seattle during which windows of several businesses and government buildings were broken.
