A Child-care center in Southern California was vandalized by five kids


“They did some really serious damage and, unfortunately, we found out that they’re very young assailants which just brings another level of heartbreak to this whole thing,” said Julie Huerta, president of the Harbor Area YWCA which runs the day care center. Teachers, she said, were shocked when they arrived for work.Tables were overturned, chairs flipped over, powdered formula spilled, fire extinguishers all discharged ,obscenities scrawled on walls and ink toner and dry baby formula thrown everywhere. Large quantities of toys were destroyed. A small fire was set in the infants’ area. Services of a hazmat team were required. The Los Angeles Port Police recovered a number of items that were taken from the scene. As result of their vandalism the San Pedro Child Development Center with 63 preschoolers served was closed for a week. It is expected to reopen Monday. The center is seeking monetary donations to help replace the many supplies that were lost or had to be thrown away. The case was turned over to the Juvenile Division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
