A clerk at The Grand called police about 11:30 p.m. to report the broken windows, which are estimated to cost $2,000 to replace.

Witnesses said they saw a man on a bicycle ride up, chuck the rocks and pedal east. No suspect description was immediately available.

“Our Valentine’s Day started off horribly as late last night our front windows were smashed!,” The Grand wrote on its Facebook page. They noted the damage will not affect their regular business hours.
