An individual threw a brick into Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner’s Roanoke regional office on Monday morning while it was empty.

Local police were called to the office at about 7:30 a.m. after someone saw an individual with bricks in the area, according to The Hill. The police then saw the damage to Warner’s office.

“This morning prior to 8 a.m., an individual threw a brick through the front office window of Sen. Warner’s Roanoke office,” Warner’s communications director Rachel Cohen told CNN on Monday. “Thankfully due to the early hour no one was in the office at the time.”

“Early this morning, someone threw a brick through the front office window of my Roanoke office. Thankfully, due to the hour, no one was there and no one was hurt. We’re all extremely grateful for the quick, professional response of the Roanoke Police Department,” Warner wrote in a Monday tweet.

The brick comes just days after a separate attack on a Democratic office in Albany, New York. An individual shot at the window of the Albany Democratic Party’s office, leaving nine bullet holes on the night of July 17, according to CBS News Albany. (RELATED: ‘ABOLISH ICE’: Vandals Throw Brick Through Window Of GOP Office, Leave Graffiti Message)

“I believe somebody was definitely targeting the Democratic Party, based on where the shots were, it was clear that they were trying to send a message to the Albany County Democratic Party,” Albany Democratic Party chairman Jack Flynn told WRGB Albany.

As of Monday, there was no officially determined motive in either attack. No one was harmed in either attack.
