While inside, the suspects caused damage to both classrooms and windows. The Darien Police are asking the public’s assistance in identifying the two suspects seen in the security footage.

Please see the below still pictures. We would ask the public to draw their attention to several particular items associated with these two suspects. One suspect is observed using his cell phone which has a unique yellow colored case. The second suspect, who is shorter than his counterpart, is wearing a brown/orange colored hat with a rectangular shaped logo on the front.
