CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Police Department said a 14-year-old was arrested in connection to the vandalism at the Cincinnati Reds Urban Youth Academy.

Cincinnati Police also said Saturday that, in addition to the 14-year-old's arrest, District 4 investigators have brought vandalism charges against a 17-year-old male in connection with the case.

Officials said the vandalism happened Tuesday night, and was discovered Wednesday morning when players arrived at the facility. Upon arrival, the players found fields, bathrooms and a statue celebrating the Cincinnati Reds’ 150th anniversary had been marked with green spray paint.

Police said the investigation is still active and more arrests are possible.
