5 Pennsylvanians Charged in Racially Motivated Assault on Jewish Summer Camp
Three adults and two children are facing charges of intimidation and assault for their alleged actions at a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania this month.
Wayne County, Pa., District Attorney Janine Edwards said in a press release that the group—in three different incidents—shouted anti-Semitic insults and shot paintballs at campers and staff members at Camp Bonim.
Eighteen-year-old Tyler Spencer tried to hit campers and damage camp fields while driving the group of five at a high speed in a pickup truck July 14, ABC News reported. His accomplice, 21-year-old Mark Trail, allegedly yelled “You f***ing Jews go back where you came from” and “I’m gonna kill you, you f***ing Jews” at the campers, according to police.
“These children were terrorized and in fear for their lives by the actions of this group,” Wayne County’s Edwards said.
