Update: Desk Was Burned, But Not Cross, at Union City Sanz Girls School


bnos-sanzUnion City police have reportred that a cross was not burned in a vandalism incident at the Sanz Klausenberg girls school in Union City, NJ, located at New York Avenue and 33rd Street (as reported here). Police  said that vandals did not enter the building. The police department is still investigating it as a bias incident, however, Union City Police Chief  Charles Everett said.

A single piece of wood, along with some cardboard, was placed on a desk that was left outside the basement door and then set aflame, cops said.

Two television news outlets – Fox and ABC in New York – reported yesterday morning that two people broke a gate, entered the school, vandalized it and burned a desk. Everett said the desk was burned in a vestibule outside a basement door to the school, which was locked.

Further, he said the two people responsible never gained access to the school. The two suspects broke a fence and a metal gate to get under an outdoor stairwell, Everett said.

A person in a nearby building saw the two people breaking onto the grounds, police said.
