DENVER -- A Donald Trump presidential campaign office in Denver was vandalized twice in less than 24 hours, the Denver Police Department confirmed with Denver7.

The office at 18th Avenue and Clarkson Street opened in August.

Early Friday, volunteers found spray paint on the front windows and on the brick side of the building.

Each of the three windows had an "L" painted on them.

The side of the building had Trump's name with three other words -- pervert, thief and a-- wipe.

On Friday night, a rock was thrown through a plate glass window, which went through a second window and narrowly missed hitting a child who was in the office volunteering at the time, according to Patrick Davis, a spokesman for the Trump campaign in Colorado.

A security guard detained the suspect rock thrower, Davis said. DPD has the possible suspect is in custody, Technician Tyrone Campbell said. 

Trump's campaign offices have been the target of vandalism before, Davis said.
