SCOTTSDALE, AZ (KPNX) – A stone cross being installed at the St. Apkar Armenian church in Scottsdale was destroyed by vandals.

Someone broke it into pieces and church officials told 12 News that they feel the vandals targeted them.

Artin Kandjian, the architect of the church, said, “It feels deliberate because it’s a terrible coincidence that this happened during the week of April 24th, which is a traditional commemoration of the Armenian genocide, which took place in 1915.”

Anyone with information relevant to this incident is asked to call the Scottsdale Police Department.
