2 teen girls arrested for vandalizing St. Patrick's Cathedral during George Floyd protests
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police arrested two teenage girls on Thursday in connection to the vandalism on St. Patrick's Cathedral last month during the protests over the death of George Floyd. Officials made the arrests after an investigation over several weeks. Authorities took 18-year-old Anaya Diaz, of Mohegan Lake into custody and she was charged with criminal mischief and graffiti. Officers also arrested a 17-year-old girl at her Ossining home and she will be charged as a juvenile.Police say on May 30, the vandals spray-painted George Floyd's name on one of the stairs and "BLM" on the wall before running on East 51st Street towards Madison Avenue.
Three men were arrested and remained jailed Sunday in connection with the disappearance of a couple who went missing in the Coachella Valley more than three years ago.
Audrey Moran and Jonathon Reynoso disappeared on May 12, 2017 and the case later became a homicide investigation, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
Moran left her Coachella home to pick up Reynoso, who may have been returning to the Coachella Valley from the Brawley area the day the couple went missing, according to investigators.
Moran said she was going to give Reynoso a ride to his Palm Desert home, but the SUV she drove was later found parked on the side of Interstate 10 in Beaumont. A police bloodhound detected their scent near the SUV, but the trail disappeared about 50 feet from the vehicle.
Manuel Rios, 28, of Coachella, Abraham Fregoso, 32, of Indio and Jesus Ruiz Jr., 41, of Stockton, were arrested on suspicion of murder Saturday in connection with the couple's disappearance, sheriff's officials said.
"This investigation is still ongoing and the public is stil encouraged to call the tip line with any helpful leads,'' Lt. Walter Mendez said.
The tip line is 760-393-3544.
