State College Police charge two Penn State students for anti-Semitic vandalism at fraternity.
STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - State College Police have charged two Penn State students as a result of vandalism at a predominately Jewish fraternity last month.

19 year-old Eric Hyland, of Export, PA, and 19 year-old Hayden Grom, of New Fairfield, CT, are charged with Ethnic Intimidation, Criminal Mischief, and Disorderly Conduct.

Police say Hyland and Grom spray-painted 12 cars outside of the Delta Sigma Phi and Beta Sigma Beta fraternities on November 8th.

Police say most of the graffiti consisted of sexual/graphic words, sexual images, swastikas, anti-Semitic language and the initials "K.K.K." They say most of the images were directed toward Beta Sigma Beta, a predominately Jewish fraternity.

Surveillance cameras footage was used to help identify Hyland and Grom. Police say both Hyland and Grom confessed to the vandalism when interviewed independently last week.
