A teenage boy has been arrested for the vandalism of a synagogue in the Tacony section of Philadelphia over the weekend.

The 13-year-old is charged with the incident on Sunday, in which a baseball-sized rock was thrown through a stained glass window at Temple Menorah Keneseth Chai.

A large hole in the window could be seen on Monday morning.

It was the latest in a series of incidents at the synagogue. There was no word on if the teen is a suspect in those cases.

In the first case, back in December, a rock was thrown through a window as well.

In the next incident, in January, eight rocks were thrown through windows.

Both of those incidents occurred on a Friday, the start of the Jewish Sabbath.
