    Police in Hull, Massachusetts said Monday they had charged multiple young people in connection with racist and anti-Semitic graffiti found at a park earlier this month.

    Authorities said a tipster allegedly saw the vandalism taking place at Fort Revere Park on Sept. 2 and provided cell phone images to authorities, helping identify the suspects.

    Those charged were under the age of 18, police said. None were from Hull. 

    The charges came three weeks after about 20 different messages and drawings were discovered by visitors at the park on Farina Road.

    “Hateful acts like these will not be tolerated in Hull and will be investigated to the fullest extent of our abilities," Hull Police Chief John Dunn said.
