Authorities say a vandal or vandals knocked over dozens of headstones and tore emblems off veterans’ markers in a night of vandalism.

Residents discovered the vandalism Friday in Richland Township cemetery, which is in Butler County. Graves had been urinated upon and memorial flowers had been shredded, and the cemetery's U.S. flag had been stolen.

Some of the tombstones date back to the 1800s.

No arrests have been reported.
