Why don't you extract some money out of those parents, citing some damage.
Atleast it will deter them somewhat.

Guys now I realized that how easy is it to ruin a bike , just pour some sand, salt, water etc etc via the dipstick vent & voila you inflict the maximum damage where it hurts the most.
TJ ur lucky. Anyways congrats the pen is out now. Buy a good bike cover for avoiding such incidents.
