A Halloween display in Pawtucket's Slater Park has been vandalized by someone who broke pumpkins, snipped electrical wires and apparently tried to start a fire.
The Pawtucket Times reports that the damage at the annual "Halloweenland" display happened last week.
Anthony Walsh sponsors the event, which is aimed at young children and families. He says someone apparently climbed a chain-link fence to get into it, and also broke through a sturdy lock on a storage shed.
Pawtucket Parks and Recreation Director John Blais says someone tried to start a fire but the grass and hay in the display were too wet.
Walsh is offering a $1,000 reward for information about who is involved. Police have also assigned a detective to the case.
