STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Police say a vandal may have smashed a window at the home of a former Penn State assistant football coach charged in a child sex abuse case that has claimed the jobs of head coach Joe Paterno and the school's president.

A broken ground-floor window in the front of the house in State College was covered Friday with what looked what a white tarp. Police say the window-smashing happened Thursday night while no one was at the home of Jerry Sandusky. No one answered the door Friday.

Sandusky was arrested last week on charges he molested eight boys. Authorities say Paterno and other officials were told about one incident but never went to police. Paterno says he wishes he had done more.

Sandusky's lawyer says his client is innocent.
