yeshiva vandalized in Jerusalem

According to reports, a yeshiva in Jerusalem was vandalized on Friday night. The yeshiva is Yeshivat Tiferet Yisrael, located in the Diskin building in the Givat Shaul neighborhood. The vandals did not desecrate the sifrei torah this time, but they desecrate the seforim, sets of tefillin and megilla scrolls.

After taking keys, they were able to get into the aron kodesh, but they didn't desecrate the torah scrolls, though they did steal the silver "hand" pointer along with a silver torah crown.

I really hope this is not becoming a thing. On the one hand, it seems to me to be different than the incident this past week in Kiryat Hayovel. This looks like frustrated thieves, whereas the incident in Kiryat Hayovel looked like they were out to cause damage. On the other hand, new methods tend to snowball and take on a life of their own...
