KENT — Someone threw a rock at the patrol car of a King County Sheriff’s deputy about 10:20 last night, smashing the windshield and startling the deputy, according to the sheriff’s office.

The rock first hit the car’s hood, then smacked into the windshield as the deputy was driving along the 13800 block of Southeast 272 Street. The deputy wasn’t hurt, but he was sprayed with glass.

Other rocks appeared to be “staged” on the side of the road, ready to be thrown, according to the sheriff’s office.

Kent police said a similar incident happened to another driver in the area recently. That driver saw three young people running away afterward.

The sheriff’s office asks you to call  206-296-3311 if you have any information about these cases, or you can call the Kent Police Department at 253- 852-2121
