The complainant said that when he returned to his car after work, he noticed the driver's side window was busted, although nothing was missing from the car. A review of video surveillance determined that a dark-colored SUV pulled up next to the complainant's vehicle, and the passenger in the SUV reached out and struck the complainant's window, breaking it.
