COLLEGE PARK. Md.--Campus police at the University of Maryland arrested three students last month, charging them with assault in two separate, ann.Semitic incidents at the College Park campus.
Robert Mars and Enrico Spina were arrested March 11 after they had threatened a Jewish student and spray-painted Nazigraffiti on his door. The case has not yet come to trial.
In an apparently unrelated incident. Roger L. Frisby was arrested March 12 on charges of assault. He dressed in black boots and pants marched high step down a dorm hall, way shouting Nazi slogans, and shot a Jewish dormmate in the leg with a BB pistol.
The Campus Judical Board revoked Frisby's housing privileges; criminal charges are still pending.
Frisby called the incident an "unfortunate joke" and said he did not know that the victim was Jewish, the Diamondback, the campus newspaper, reported this week.
