Two teens suspected of vandalism in Azusa

AZUSA — Police jailed two 15-year-old Chino Hills boys late Friday on suspicion of graffiti vandalism, police said.
The incident began when witnesses reported seeing two boys spray-painting on a cinder block wall in the 600 block of S. Cerritos Avenue, Azusa police Sgt. Mike Gurbada said in a written statement.
The boys fled onto the campus of nearby Center Middle School, 5500 N. Cerritos Avenue in an unincorporated county area, the sergeant said.
Officers caught the teens in the campus, and both denied scrawling the graffiti, Gurbada said.
The witnesses were able to identify them as the taggers, however, and both teens had fresh paint on their hands, he said.
Gurbada added that both teens were cited and released to their parents.
