LaGrange police are searching for a man suspected of throwing a rock through his wife’s front window at an apartment in the first block of North Cary Street about 5 p.m. Thursday.

The woman told officers she had just arrived home when her husband, whom she is separated from, started knocking on her door. She did not let him inside, but a few minutes later received a phone call from a cab company telling them she needed to pay her husband’s cab fare. She told officers she refused.

According to the report, the woman said a few minutes later she heard glass break and found damage to her bedroom window and a rock sitting on the bed.

LaGrange police said they verified through the cab company that they dropped the woman’s husband off at the North Cary location but then he disappeared.

The victim told police her husband threw a rock through the same window less than a week ago.

Police are still investigating and looking for the suspect, who could face criminal trespass charges under the Family Violence Act.
