(CNN) - Three adults and two juveniles were arrested Wednesday for allegedly terrorizing a Jewish camp in Pennsylvania. Authorities say Tyler Cole Spencer, 18, Mark Trail, 21, Cassandra Robertson, 18, and two juveniles intimidated Jewish campers and staff at Camp Bonim on three separate occasions on July 14 and 15.
