Milton police arrested a teenager after witnesses sent in a tip on who vandalized the Schilberg Park bathrooms over the weekend.

Witnesses said Cody S. Bauer, 17, of Milton, caused the damage Friday night, officials said.

Two sinks, a soap dispenser and a paper towel dispenser in the women’s bathroom were broken off their mounts and destroyed, according to a release. The men’s bathroom had graffiti in it along with the remnants of a fire in one of the sinks.

Police said during an interview Bauer admitted to causing the damage himself and using a large rock from the area near the football fields.

Bauer was arrested on charges of criminal damage to property. He will be in court Dec. 16 on the misdemeanor charge.
