CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Ramapo police are investigating after a large above ground pool was found vandalized at a day camp for Orthodox Jewish children.
Around 8:45 a.m. Sunday, police got a call that the vinyl sides of the pool at Camp Shalom had been slashed several times, authorities said.
There was no water in the pool except for a few inches of rain water at the time of the incident. Police said it appears the damage happened sometime between 6 p.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. Sunday.
The camp’s attorney, Ryan Karben, said the camp is leasing the space from Chestnut Ridge Middle School for the summer and said some in the neighborhood have expressed discomfort with camp operating at the school.
