Two teenagers have been arrested in connection with the graffiti and vandalism at Forts Ferry Elementary School in Latham on October 29.

Both suspects are 13 years old, say police. They don’t live in Colonie and have no connection to any North Colonie schools, but were visiting someone who lives near the school at the time.

The graffiti included a racial slur and phallic symbols, according to police, drawn with “chalk-like” substance. Police don’t believe it was targeted to anyone.

Some windows were also broken.

The names of the kids won’t be released because of their age.
