A glass can break in a thousand ways, you need to be more specific
- what kind of glass
- what kind of damage
first thing that comes in mind is an accelerometer that just detect the force of an impact

You can also detect change in temperature of a wind flow or ...

Why not use an actual glass breakage sensor?  They make different types too.

These are some Application Note for the Texas Instruments MSP430

MSP430 is a microcontroller that is somewhat similar to the Atmega used with Arduino,
maybe you will find some useful informations.
