AKRON, Ohio — Akron police detectives are asking for the public's help identifying three people who damaged property at the Shaw Jewish Community Center on May 30.

According to police, a male and two females pulled up to the facility, located at 750 White Pond Road, jumped a fence surrounding the pool and started breaking windows, using fire extinguishers and "spray-painting obscenities on the pool deck and signs." Authorities said the obscenities were slang phrases targeted at police. The trio also threw a trash can and umbrellas into the pool. Damage to the facility is estimated to be in excess of $1,000.

Anyone with information about the vandals' identities is asked to call police at 330-375-2464 or CrimeStoppers at 440-434-COPS. You can also text "TIPSCO" and a tip to 274637.
