Arrested at The Zoo? 5 Young Men Hop Fence At Utica Zoo
It's unclear whether it was some kind of a dare or a prank, but police were called to the Utica Zoo around midnight after a group of young men hopped a security fence and gained access to the grounds.
The zoo's security cameras caught the group jumping the fence at around 11:55 on Sunday night. Arriving officers would find them trying to hid neared a fenced area. One tried to run off when officers approached but was quickly captured, police said. All five are from Syracuse and range between 18- and 20-years-old, police said.
The following were charged with third degree criminal trespass, a misdemeanor under New York State law:
- Law Reh age 18 of Syracuse
- Pee Kah age 19 of Syracuse
- Abdirahman Farah age 20 of Syracuse
- Kyaw Htoo age 18 of Syracuse
- Hourana Sow age 20 of Syracuse
What they may have been up to or why they were taking the after hours tour is unclear.
