About 9 p.m. April 2 an officer responded to a business in the 4000 block of Mabry Drive for a criminal damage report.
A woman said a male she knew broke the windshield on her vehicle.
She said the man had just been released from jail and was not supposed to have contact with her because of the charges against him. She said he called her and told her he wanted some of his belongings out of her vehicle and told her he would bust out the windows of her car if he didn’t get what he wanted.
She said he showed up at her work and started yelling at him but she ignored him so he went outside.
One of the woman’s coworkers saw him swing an object on a string at her car window, then drive away fast.
The estimated cost of the window was $200.

The man said the unknown object hit his cheek.
A firefighter said he was behind the suspect’s vehicle and witnessed the incident. He provided the officer with the vehicle’s license plate number.
