The woman and her toddler live at the Coplin residence. On New Year’s Eve, two large rocks were thrown through one of the home’s windows while the child was in the room.

Some of the acts of vandalism have been captured on surveillance video.

While no one has been physically harmed during the incidents, Coplin says his family is scared to death and they all have trouble sleeping at night.
