2 Teens Arrested In Homophobic Vandalism Case

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – Two teenagers in Salem, Oregon have been arrested on suspicion of spraying homophobic graffiti on the house, car and driveway of another teen and throwing a rock into the window of his family home.

The Salem Police Department said Wednesday that the teens were arrested Aug. 20 and have been charged in juvenile court with a bias crime.

Police say the graffiti was directed at the teen living in the home.

A neighboring car was also damaged in the July 27 incident.

Due to their age, authorities are withholding the defendants’ names.
