BOSTON (AP) -- Police say a person is in custody for allegedly vandalizing the New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston.

Police say the suspect smashed a glass panel on Monday.

It's the second time the memorial has been damaged this summer.

In June, authorities say James Isaac used a rock to shatter a roughly 9-foot tall glass panel on one of the memorial's six 54-foot-high towers. Isaac has pleaded not guilty to vandalism charges.

The six glass towers are lit internally and etched with millions of numbers that represent tattoos on the arms of many Jews sent to Nazi death camps.

The repaired memorial was rededicated in July.
