STATE COLLEGE (AP) – Police said two Penn State students have been charged with ethnic intimidation after they admitted last week to vandalizing property near a predominantly Jewish fraternity.


The Centre Daily Times said Monday that 19-year-old sophomores Eric Hyland and Hayden Grom are accused of spray painting 12 cars, a Dumpster, and a garage outside the Beta Sigma Beta fraternity in State College Nov. 8.


The vandalism included sexual, graphic and anti-Semitic words and images.


Police said Hyland and Grom confessed to the vandalism. They are charged with ethnic intimidation, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.


A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 15 in Bellefonte.


A university spokeswoman said the men will face a disciplinary hearing. She declined to comment on potential sanctions but said the university takes the allegations seriously.
