Window shattered at downtown synagogue

A Richmond County sheriff's officer investigates the apparent vandalism of a glass door at Chabad of Augusta on Wednesday morning.


Police are investigating an attempted burglary at a Broad Street synagogue.

Richmond County deputies were called to the Chabad of Augusta, 850 Broad St., Wednesday morning after someone reported a window had been shattered by a brick.

Sgt. Paul Godden said it appears the vandal fled the scene without entering the synagogue. Although it initially appeared that items were missing, Godden said, the rabbi accounted for all items.
