Two of Beis Rivkas school buses were vandalized sometime late last night or today. The vandals smashed the windows on one of the buses as well as sprayed fire extinguishers, leaving the buses covered with a fire retardant powder.
The vandalism was discovered by one of the bus drivers this evening at around 5:00pm inside the Beis Rivka parking lot on Montgomery Street near Nostrand Avenue. The drivers went to prepare and check the buses ahead of the school resuming normal schedule tomorrow, but was stunned to find two of the three buses vandalized.
One bus suffered the worst of it with many of its windows smashed in. The vandals appear to have used rocks and bricks to destroy the windows and glass doors. The vandals then gained access to the bus through its emergency exits and sprayed its emergency fire extinguishers all over the bus.
The second bus was not physically damaged, there the vandals only sprayed the fire extinguisher.
Police were called and report was filed. Surveillance cameras in the areas may have captured a part of the vandalism and the footage is being currently obtained in hopes of identifying the vandals.
