Two women reported having their vehicle windows broken during daylight hours in Bismarck.

Both incidents occurred during the middle of the day on Tuesday, a contrast to most cases of thefts from vehicles.

Sgt. Mark Buschena said a 60-year-old Mandan woman reported she went for a walk in Pioneer Park, 2020 River Road, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. When she returned, her driver's side window had been broken, and her Straight Talk cellphone had been stolen. The window was valued at $250 and the cellphone at $80.

Buschena said a 51-year-old Mandan woman reported she was in the YMCA, 1608 N. Washington St., from 12:28 p.m. to 1:05 p.m. Tuesday. When she came out, she noticed a driver's side window was broken and her Apple iPhone and purse were missing.

Buschena said the car was parked in the west lot against the walking path along Divide Avenue. The window was valued at $500, the iPhone at $800 and the purse at $10. The woman also was missing an undisclosed amount of cash.
