FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WABC) -- Police in New Jersey are investigating after someone threw a rock through the window of a woman driving with her 4-year-old daughter.

The incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday on Willow Avenue in Franklin Township, Somerset County.

The driver, a 35-year-old woman from Somerset, told police she had observed a lawn chair in the middle of the roadway.

A rock was found on the floor of the passenger side of the vehicle. Police believe it was thrown by teenagers from the area.
