A large window worth thousands of dollars was shattered as the result of a disturbance outside Boscov’s department store in downtown Binghamton.
The incident reportedly occurred early Saturday morning. A person somehow smashed through the display window next to the store’s Court Street entrance.
Boscov’s senior vice president Jacob Stein – responding to an inquiry from WNBF News – in an email said the window apparently was not broken during “an attempted burglary or intentional vandalism.” He wrote: “An incident occurred near our store front that led to it being broken.”

Workers from Binghamton Plate Glass Company removed what remained of the damaged window Monday afternoon.
The window – which measured 13½-by-8½ feet – is expected to be replaced later this week. The replacement cost was estimated at a few thousand dollars.
The person responsible for the damage reportedly was identified by police. It could not be determined whether charges have been filed in connection with the incident.
