Three adults and two juveniles are under arrest for allegedly for making children at a Jewish summer camp feel “terrorized and in fear of for their lives.”
The five were arrested in Wayne County, Pa., ABC News reported. They face felony and misdemeanor charges, including “assault, vandalism and terroristic threats.”
Allegations include shouting anti-Semitic epithets and firing paintball guns at campers and staff at Camp Bonim, Edwards said in a press released.
““These children were terrorized and in fear for their lives by the actions of this group,” District Attorney Janine Edwards said in a press release. “The vicious, cruel and obscene nature of the language hurled at the campers is unspeakable. Luckily none of the children suffered any serious physical injury, however, the emotional damage is immeasurable
The camp has about 300 children.
Those arraigned, according to ABC News, include: Tyler Spencer, 18, from Linden, Tenn.; Mark Trail, 21 of Wayne County; and Cassandra Robertson, 18, of Wayne County. They were reportedly held on $20,000 bail. A 17-year-old and a 16-year-old face juvenile court cases, according to ABC News.
