HAMDEN — Police are searching for a man they said allegedly smashed in a window at a job center with a rock.

Hamden police were called to the state Department of Labor building at 37 Marne St. Tuesday “on a report of criminal mischief,” Capt. Ronald Smith said in a news release.

“Investigation revealed that an individual, described as a bald, middle-aged, white male approached the front door at approximately 9:00 a.m.,” Smith said.

The male knocked on the door, which was locked, and walked away.

“He then threw a rock” at the building, Smith said, “shattering a large window.”

The man was seen leaving the area in a “newer white Toyota sedan.” Smith said.

The Hamden American Job Center provides services such as job search assistance, workshops for those looking to be hired and services for veterans, according to the agency’s website.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Derick Manning at (203) 230-4030.
