Ms Marsden, who stood in last week’s local elections, said her upstairs window was smashed at 7.30pm on Sunday in a tweet she later deleted 

In a tweet which was later deleted, she said whoever had thrown the brick was ‘in serious trouble’ and tagged Liverpool’s Labour group.

However, she later said she had tagged the party only to ‘make them aware’

Ms Marsden, who stood for election in Cressington in last week’s local elections, said: ‘We had not long put the baby to bed when it happened.

‘She just got a fright, but it’s terrifying to think this can happen while you’re just sitting in your own home.’

After tagging ‘Liverpool Labour’ in her tweet, she was slammed by some on social media for supposedly implying the culprit was linked to the Labour Party.

But Ms Marsden responded: ‘I tweeted Labour to make them aware.

‘The Lib Dems already know because I’ve been told it also happened to one of their Liverpool councillors on Friday.

‘I’ve no idea who did it, it could have been anyone.

‘I tagged Labour into the tweet because I think they need to be aware of it, having it potentially been a politically motivated attack and anyone else could be a victim.

‘I am in no way saying that the party are directly to blame.’

Afterwards Ms Marsden was sent supportive messages on social media from political figures.

House of Lords peer Baroness Jenkin tweeted: ‘Appalled to hear that a brick thrown through the window of Jade Marsden’s baby’s window.

‘@conservatives activist on Merseyside and council candidate on Thursday. Also LibDem candidate. Coincidence?

‘We must protect women candidates better. Police pls investigate.’

Tory Chichester MP Gillian Keegan wrote: ‘So sorry to hear this Jade – outrageous xx.’

But Twitter user Kieren McHale wrote: ‘Shocking. No child deserves to grow up with Tory parents.’

Merseyside Police confirmed officers had received a report of criminal damage at a home in Allerton, Liverpool.

They have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

It’s the second time Ms Marsden has been the victim of crime in less than twelve months. 

In the run-up to the 2017 General Election, for which she was parliamentary candidate for Sefton Central, two posters with her face on were defaced in Formby.

One sign had its slogan covered in paint and replaced by ‘Vote Labour’.

On the other, her eyes and one of her teeth had been shaded in.
