Four teens arrested after racial graffiti is found in Dobbs Ferry, Irvington

Four Dobbs Ferry teenagers are accused of spray-painting swastikas and racial slurs on public property. The graffiti was discovered last week on a park bench in Irvington and a picnic table behind Dobbs Ferry High School.

The teens were arraigned at Dobbs Ferry Village Hall. Authorities say they are charged with defacing public property with racial slurs and symbols. Although police are investigating the incident as a bias crime, the teens are not being charged with a hate crime under New York state law.

The teens will back in court on Thursday, and because of their ages, the case documents will be sealed.
