Busted Car Window

So on Monday evening (8 pm-ish) I heard a crack thinking "Did someone throw something at my window? Was it ice falling?" After checking the house...nothing. A few moments later my neighbor called me to check if I and everything was okay because my car window had been busted. (So that was the crack I heard.) Just an fyi...I live right under the street light and have a very bright sensor porch light. Only thing I can think of is that it was a random act of anger...While better my car window than my family...just thought I'd give you all a heads up.
