A Cambridge couple has two dents in their new car after rocks, or some other objects, were thrown at it Sunday night while they drove through Georgetown South, but they are just relieved no one was injured in the incident. Andrea Taborda said she and her husband Ricardo and their twin three-year-old daughters Ava and Olivia were heading south on Mountainview Rd. between Barber Dr. and Argyll Rd. at about 9 p.m. after visiting family in Glen Williams when they heard two loud bangs. She said they immediately pulled over their 2006 Toyota Camry, and got out to see what had happened. They found two dents in the rear passenger side door. One was close to the window, and the other about two inches below. The couple was very upset, not so much for the damage to their car because they have a body shop owner in the family, but because the rocks could have gone through the window where Ava was sitting. "If it had gone through the glass it would have busted every bone in her face, if not killed her," said Taborda. She said when they drove back they saw two males, who had been hidden by the trees on Smith Dr., run off across Mountainview Rd. Ricardo chased them to McKinnon Ave. but they both got away. Police were called and are investigating the incident. Det. Sgt. Peter Hodgson said police take incidents like this one very seriously. "Fortunately there were no injuries in this case, but often times it does result in some very serious injuries," said Hodgson. He said even if no one is hit by the object, having an object thrown at a car can startle the driver causing him to lose control of the vehicle. "If you're looking for fun, find a different way to have fun," said Taborda. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Det. Sgt. Hodgson at 905-878-5511 ext. 2415 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.
