More than 50 headstones were toppled at a Jewish cemetery in Indiana.

The vandalism at the Fort Wayne Jewish Cemetery was discovered on Monday afternoon by volunteer cemetery workers. There was no accompanying graffiti.

Several of the headstones were damaged when they were knocked over. Many of the granite stones were so large that it would have taken at least three people to knock them over, Fort Wayne Jewish Cemetery Association President Dan Zweig told the News-Sentinel.
