MARION, Ohio -- A little girl was riding in the back seat of her dad's car Sunday, when Marion police officials say a large rock was thrown through the window - hitting her in the face.
Alexia Manley, 9, was reportedly taken to the hospital with a badly broken nose. Her uncle Christopher Manley was riding in the car's front seat when he heard what he said, "sounded like a gunshot."
He said they had just crossed underneath the railroad overpass on Leader Street in Marion, when it happened. At first, Alexia said she didn't know what had happened, "It was something hard that hit me, then I felt something cold running down my face...I wiped it and it was blood."
Investigators reportedly have no suspects in what they believe was a deliberate throw. Alexia's mother Kimberly Manley says she hopes the perpitrators will turn themselves in, "If they don't come forward, I hope they feel like a piece of crap."
Marion police encourage anyone with information on who may have thrown that rock to call them at - (740) 387-2525.
