Teenagers vandalise sports centre
Santa Cruz city council has voiced its anger after three youngsters vandalised a sports centre, causing extensive damage.
The trio’s target was the Ana Bautista Sports Pavilion which was broken into and nu-merous windows smashed, as well as several fire extin-guishers emptied. The vandalism also affected the carpet of the pavilion and the stands.
The three children involved, 13, 14 and 15 years old, were detained until their parents were located.
Technicians from the department of sport have been assessing the damage and drawing up a report on what remedial action needs to be done.
The city council said it had to bring in security guards for the hours after the attack because the sports centre was still open.
