Noose found at Maryland middle school

WASHINGTON — Police are asking for the public’s help identifying two male suspects who they say hung a noose from a middle school in Crofton, Maryland.

The Anne Arundel County police said that officers were called to the Crofton Middle School, on Davidsonville Road, at about 11 a.m. Thursday. Shortly before, they said, a teacher found the noose hanging from a light fixture on the exterior of the school building.

Detectives watched surveillance video from the school and found that two people got onto the roof early Thursday and put the noose there.

If you can identify the suspects, or know anything else about the case, the police ask you to call them at 410-222-9772.
