Teens accused of vandalizing Holocaust statues at Jewish museum

They caused roughly $15,000 in damage, according to the museum.

A 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy have been charged after allegedly vandalizing five Holocaust statues at a Jewish museum in Oklahoma, authorities said.

The “two suspects came through the park area and destroyed the five statues” early Wednesday, Tulsa police Lt. William White said. Surveillance video shows the teens bending the metal statues and knocking them down, while also allegedly trying to steal them.

Before going to the museum, the boys also allegedly threatened someone with a knife, police said. No one was hurt.

The teens were charged with assault with a deadly weapon and felony vandalism, police said Thursday.
