A man remains in custody after being held accountable for an incident involving the vandalism of an Arizona airport causing them to halt operations for a full day in order to administer repairs.

On Friday, the Glendale Municipal Airport was the site of an incident involving damage to an entire floor of their building. The airport serves as an institution that provides instruction to new pilots and contains technological devices that allow the trainees to participate in mock-flights for practice.

The reported cause of the catastrophe appeared to be a suspect who allegedly broke several windows with a hammer before bringing a hose inside of the building and allowing it to flood the interior of the ground floor. The building was unable to reopen for 24 hours due to the amount of clean-up and dry time needed to restore it, and it reportedly cost $70,000 to complete the job.

A man who is a pastor at a Los Angeles church has been accused of the molestation of two young Chinese girls who are foreign exchange students that were staying in a hotel room.

Two girls, ages 10 and 12, were sharing a room at the Vanllee Hotel and Suites in Covina on Wednesday night when they were the alleged victims of a sexual predator. The young women are a part of a foreign exchange student program and they were taking part in a field trip. Though they had their own room there was a chaperone in the establishment to keep watch over the students.

Hotel surveillance video displayed a silver truck parked outside the room where the girls were staying, and a man was seen staring into their hotel room and masturbating while looking at them through the window. The man then allegedly entered the lobby of the hotel and knocked on their door. The victims opened the door believing that it was their chaperone, but they were met by the stranger who then forced his way into the room.
