SCARBOROUGH — Police say a pair of youths spray-painted swastikas and profanities on the driveway and garage door of a Maine home.

Scarborough police say the graffiti sprayed on April 3 didn’t target the family’s religious beliefs and isn’t considered a hate crime.

Police say the spray-painting wasn’t random.

Authorities did not identify the 16-year-old Windham girl and 17-year-old Old Orchard Beach boy who were charged because they’re juveniles.

Police say both face a felony charge of aggravated criminal mischief.

Scarborough police say the pair also spray-painted graffiti on a town-owned concession building at Wiley Field.

They are expected to be arraigned in a Cumberland County courtroom in late May.
