Five Arrested for Assaulting Jewish Summer Camp

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Three adults and two juveniles have been arrested for allegedly infiltrating a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania and terrorizing campers and staff with hateful epithets and threats.  CNN.com reports:

Authorities say Tyler Cole Spencer, 18, Mark Trail, 21, Cassandra Robertson, 18, and two juveniles intimidated Jewish campers and staff at Camp Bonim on three separate occasions on July 14 and 15.

Spencer allegedly drove a white Ford pickup truck “recklessly” through the camp, “narrowly missing several campers and staff” and damaging fields, yards, buildings and fences, the police criminal complaint said.

The group also allegedly used paintball guns to shoot Jewish campers and staff, hitting one 18-year-old camper leaving a synagogue, according to the complaint.

Authorities allege members of the group also shouted anti-Semitic slurs at campers and staff.
