Three adults and two juveniles have been arrested for allegedly terrorizing a Jewish summer camp in Pennsylvania, ABC News reported this week.
District Attorney Janine Edwards said in a press release that in three separate episodes earlier this month the suspects caused property damage as they sped dangerously through Camp Bonim in Wayne County in a pickup truck, shouting anti-Semitic epithets and firing paintball guns at campers and staff.

He said the three adults were arrested Wednesday morning and face felony and misdemeanor charges, including ethnic intimidation, terroristic threats and assault.
"These children were terrorized and in fear for their lives by the actions of this group," Edwards said in the release. "The vicious, cruel and obscene nature of the language hurled at the campers is unspeakable. Luckily none of the children suffered any serious physical injury, however, the emotional damage is immeasurable."
The camp has about 300 children.
According to ABC News, those arraigned include: Tyler Spencer, 18, from Linden, Tenn.; Mark Trail, 21 of Wayne County; and Cassandra Robertson, 18, of Wayne County. They were reportedly held on $20,000 bail. A 17-year-old and a 16-year-old face juvenile court cases, ABC News reported.
Camp Bonim's director Dovid Presser was quoted by ABC News as saying, "Because of what goes on out there in the world, people get scared quick, and that's what they were trying to accomplish."
