A young boy was arrested on charges of arson after he allegedly burned a playground because he was bored, Israel Police said.
The Be’er Sheva Police Department said that they arrested the 12-year-old boy on Tuesday, after being accused of setting the playground on fire.
The investigation was launched after a resident filed a complaint with the police, saying that the playground was burned beyond recognition.
During questioning, the boy told police that he burned the playground because he was bored. Earlier this week, vandals set a playground on fire in Nashville, Tennessee.
Firefighters who arrived at the McFerrin Park, extinguished the flames that damaged part of the slides. The vandals fled from the scene before police arrived.
