    Arrow Through The Window (And) Into The Kitchen

    Suppose some guy threw a stone that went through the kitchen window and landed in the kitchen.

    Should I write:
    Someone threw a stone through the window into the kitchen.
    Or,
    Someone threw a stone through the window and into the kitchen.

    Someone threw a stone through the window into the kitchen.

    If you used the other sentence, there would be a possibility that he threw two stones,

    You usually say you throw a stone at something(the window).
    The stone went through the window and landed in the kitchen.

    Re: Through The Window (And) Into The Kitchen

    Suppose some guy himself physically jumped through the kitchen window and landed in the kitchen.

    Should I write:
    Someone jumped through the window into the kitchen.
    Or,
    Someone jumped through the window and into the kitchen.
