Obama's Westside campaign office vandalized

 

Los Angeles police were investigating a Thursday night  incident in which someone shot BB-gun pellets and threw an object into President Obama's Westside campaign office, authorities said.

The incident was reported at 7:25 p.m. at the office in the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue.

The person who called in the incident "reported hearing glass breaking and noticed that windows were broken," LAPD spokeswoman Sara Faden said.

No one was in the office at the time, Faden said. Police did not say what object was thrown into the office.

The LAPD had no immediate description of the vandal and it was not clear if the act was captured on video.

The incident comes days before the president is due to visit Los Angeles to raise money for what is expected to be a bruising 2012 reelection campaign.
