Newtown Broken Shopfront GlassUnfortunately unprovoked property vandalism is still present throughout Sydney. It remains as a constant nuisance to Sydney shopkeepers and also results in inflated insurance premiums. In a recent act of vandalism a Newtown shop was targeted by a yet to be identified vandal who propelled an object through a large shop front window. The impact shattered the glass resulting in an extremely dangerous situation as seen in the attached photo. The original glass was annealed plate glass, which produces large dangerous shards of glass when broken. Thankfully the shopkeeper was able to attend the site to prevent any passers-by from touching the unstable broken glass.
