A POLICE car's passenger window was smashed with a brick this afternoon as officers responded to reports of a sudden death in Beechwood.
Detectives have launched an appealing for the public's help to find those responsible for the incident in Feder Way.
At around 3.30pm, a grey motorcycle pulled up alongside the police car with two people onboard. One of them threw a brick through the window, causing considerable damage.
The officers weren't inside the car at the time.

Inspector Andy McLullich said: "Our job is to keep you safe and this is what we get in return? It is really saddening to see someone could do this.
"It isn't just a quick fix – this has left us one car down meaning less officers are able to patrol the streets, help vulnerable people and respond to incidents.
"In a time where there is already a huge demand on all emergency services, it is shocking that this anti-social and careless behaviour carries on.
"Luckily the officers weren't inside the car at the time, but they were dealing with a separate incident.
"Needless to say, this was unnecessary and shows the true nature of some people and their complete lack of respect for services currently going above and beyond to keep them safe."
