Youths arrested in Jewish center destruction

NORWICH – Three Norwich youths have been apprehended and charged with wrecking the inside of a synagogue on South Broad Street last week, according the City of Norwich Police Department.



Listed between the ages of 13 and 14, the three youths were arrested Saturday after an “involved parent” contacted police with information about the crime.

Since Wednesday, when the damage was discovered, the Norwich Police have been leading an investigation with assistance from state police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation evidence technicians.

“We’re terribly relieved,” said Dr. Lawrence Rosenblum, a member of the Norwich Jewish Center, located at 70-76 S. Broad St. “We’re so appreciative the police have closed this out.”
