Charlottesville Police is investigating a case vandalism at one of the city's graveyards.

Police say about five headstones were knocked over at the Riverview Cemetery some time overnight Tuesday.

Cemetery employees noticed beer bottles and broken glass around several grave sites and on the headstones. Neither police, or cemetery officials have an idea about who did the damage.

A cemetery spokesperson says the headstones will be replaced, and the grave sites will cleaned of debris.
