A cafe owner on Madison's East side says he is upset someone threw a rock wrapped in an anti-recall message through the window of his Atwood Avenue business.
The owner of The Victory at 2710 Atwood Avenue, Patrick Downey, tells me his business has been displaying "Recall Governor Walker" signs in its window. Tonight, he says a rock flew through the window of his restaurant, "coming within one foot of someone inside".
He says, the rock came through the window with such force he believes a slingshot device might have been used to propel it.
Downey says the rock was wrapped in a message opposing the recall campaign against Governor Scott Walker. "People need to know about this", he says. In addition to displaying signs in favor of recalling Governor Walker, The Victory posted last February on its website, "Half-price coffee drinks Thursday for any and all protesters!"
He has contacted the Madison Police Department.
We will hear more from the person who was almost hit tonight on NBC15 News at 10.
