Metro officials say that someone threw a rock at an A6 bus on Livingston Road Southeast just after 10:45 a.m. 22 people were on the bus when the window was broken.

The person who threw the rock was not located.

In January, WMATA rolled out a campaign to stop people from throwing rocks at buses. The punishment for being caught doing so include fines and prison time.

The problem was so bad at one point that Metro actually considered cutting off bus service to some areas of the District.
