Rodents Eating My Tomatoes

We have a tomato plant on our deck, hanging in an upside down plant hanger. Something has been ravaging it during the night. The leaves are curled and some are chewed with holes. Some are missing altogether. There are droppings on the tomatoes, as well as on the table and deck below, the size of rodent droppings. We know we have raccoon in the area. Would it be safe to assume rodents are to blame?

I believe you have tomato worms. They have large appetites and they do leave large droppings which resemble rat droppings.
