Windows smashed at Toni Harp's headquarters

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)-- New Haven police are investigating to find out who smashed the windows at a mayoral candidate's headquarters.

Glass is shattered at mayoral candidate's State Senator Toni Harp's Headquarters.

"I felt disgusted. I'm truly disgusted about this whole thing," said Sarah McClain, a neighbor.

"I see the glass broken and I'm like 'oh my god, why are they doing this?' It just terrible," said Martha Ponciano, a neighbor.

Even though supporters don't know the intentions of the perpetrators Friday night, they find the whole scenario disheartening.

"You really can't say whether it was random, whether it was a couple of knuckleheads vandalizing, or if it was meant as intimidation or whatever, we're not going to worry about that. We're just going to keep moving on with the campaign," said Jason Bartlett, Campaign Manager.

Harp's campaign manager says he first arrived Saturday morning around 8:30, saw the mess, and called police.

Then, broke the news to Harp.

"She came by, we spoke briefly, she just kind of shook her head and we just talked. We have to move on and move forward," said Bartlett.

He says he called a window company to fix up the place

While police checked for surveillance cameras in the area. They both want to find out who did it and more importantly why.

The next debate is schedule for July 31st, the democratic primary is this September.
