Police are investigating a weekend incident at Atholton High School,where vandals set fire to a baseball dugout bench, painted "KKK" andother messages on buildings and stole school supplies.
No arrestshave been made in the incident, which occurred between 10:30 p.m. Friday and 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the school, in the 6500 block of Freetown Road.
It is apparently one of several race-related incidents to occur on school grounds since January. Last month, "KKK" was painted on Thunder Hill Elementary School. Hate-bias literature was sent to two middle schools in February. And in January, a parent complained to the school board that her second-grade son had been punched in the stomach and called a "nigger" at West Friendship Elementary School.
