The children involved could face charges.

“This is a private school, but it stops the school from doing what it needs to do in terms of teaching kids, so that kind of upset a little bit, so we're looking at some kind of felony vandalism,” said  Columbus police Detective Craig Bowen. 

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Columbus Police Detective Bowen at 614-645-2088 or Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.
