Something shattered a plate glass window Saturday about 2 p.m. at the Betsy Peterson Designs studio and gallery at 1121 Second St. in downtown Perry.
Perry Police Department Office Wayne Schuttler kept passersby well away from the enormous shards still hanging from the large and largely empty frame facing Warford Street.
The cause of the breakage is unknown at this hour.
Perry-Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Bob Wilson, flush with good feeling over this year’s record-breaking BRR Bike Ride to Rippey, looked for the up side to the destruction.
“I feel awful for a new downtown business to have this happen,” Wilson said. “I’m just glad no one was injured.”
