MANCHESTER, Md. (AP) — A Carroll County man has been charged with defacing a Christian summer camp with racial slurs.

The Carroll County Times reports that 21-year-old Alexander Donhauser of Manchester was arrested Monday and charged in the incident that took place at The River Valley Ranch in September.

Police say Donhauser spray painted several racist phrases on windows, doors and buildings. Witnesses described a person fleeing on a moped and police say Donhauser was arrested during a traffic stop the next day on a similar moped.

He denied defacing the property, but police say a witness recognized Donhauser in a photo array in October. A warrant was issued in October.

Donhauser is charged with fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property and various property damage charges.
