Upstate NY boys accused of anti-Semitic hate crime


WILTON, N.Y. (AP) - Police say two upstate NY boys accused of defacing a car with anti-Semitic images and words have been charged with a hate crime.

The Saratoga County Sheriff's office tells local media outlets a 13-year-old from Wilton and 14-year-old from Saratoga Springs were charged Thursday with second-degree criminal mischief as a hate crime.

Deputies say the boys etched the offensive messages into the paint of a car parked in a driveway in Wilton on Wednesday.

Their names aren't being released because of their ages. The case will be handled in Family Court.
