Quincy House Window Broken by Projectile
Somebody threw an unknown object from DeWolfe St. at Quincy House last night, breaking a large third-floor common room window and slightly injuring one student resident.
At around 10:20 p.m., a projectile broke the plate glass window, spewing glass all over the common room and on the back of a student watching television there, witnesses said. The student, who was cut on the ear and the back, went to University Health Services but said the wounds were not serious and did not require stitches.
The three students in the room, located in the new part of Quincy near the corner of DeWolfe and Mt. Auburn Sts., said they did not see who threw the object. They also said that neither they nor the police, who arrived less than five minutes later, could find the projectile.
Harvard Police officers at the scene would not comment.
Shortly after the officers left the room, a facilities maintenance worker put duct tape over the two-square-foot hole in the window.
