Police seek DNA evidence in Laguna Beach acid rock attack

Laguna Beach police plan to conduct DNA and fingerprint tests hoping to indentify the suspect who threw a rock with acid on it through the window of a home Friday.

The suspect also spray-painted the home's garage door with the phrase "Stalk Someone Else."

At 2:45 a.m. Friday, a woman reported that a man wearing a ski mask threw a rock through her home's living room window. Her husband went to chase him but he got away.

Authorities found an item that appeared to be some sort of electronic device attached to the rock. After evaluation, the bomb squad determined it was not an explosive device. 

The couple and responding officer began to feel ill as the couple were giving their statement.

Anyone with information can call (949) 497-0389.
