Vandalism of Obama's Westside campaign office probed

Obama's Westside campaign office vandalism
Los Angeles police were continuing Friday to investigate vandalism at President Obama’s campaign office in Westchester.

“The suspect is still unknown at this time,” said Officer Gregory Baek, an LAPD spokesman.

Someone fired BB-gun pellets and threw an object Thursday night into the campaign office on the 6700 block of South Centinela Avenue.

A caller told police of hearing glass break and seeing a broken window at the office about 7:25 p.m.

No one was in the office at the time, and no one was injured.

The president will visit Los Angeles on a fund-raising trip in a few days.
