5 charged with intimidation at Jewish summer camp

WAYMART, Pa. (AP) – Three adults and two juveniles have been charged with terrorizing campers at a Jewish summer camp in northeastern Pennsylvania.
 
Authorities in Wayne County alleged Wednesday that the group sped through the grounds of Camp Bonim in Clinton Township in a pickup truck on three occasions earlier this month, shooting paintballs at campers, destroying property and yelling racial epithets at campers and staff.
 
Facing numerous charges including ethnic intimidation, terroristic threats and riot are 18-year-old Tyler Spencer of Linden, Tenn., 21-year-old Mark Trail of Bethany, 18-year-old Cassandra Robertson of Honesdale and the unnamed juveniles.
 
Spencer had been charged earlier in a hit-and-run accident involving one of the camp counselors.
 
Listed numbers for the defendants could not be found and it was unclear whether they had attorneys.
