Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Police say a teenager has admitted vandalizing the campaign office of New York Congressman Michael Grimm.
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says the eighth grader told a school counselor that he and a friend had broken a window over the weekend at the office on Staten Island.
The spokesman said Tuesday that the boy was expected to be charged as a juvenile with criminal mischief.
Grimm had reported the incident as a break-in. He also has alleged that someone had tampered with a computer server containing sensitive campaign information.
Browne said investigators were still examining the server.
