Police said that a statue in New York City’s Union Square Park honoring George Floyd was vandalized Sunday.
Police say that a video of an unidentified man riding a skateboard and spraying paint on the statue around 10:10 a.m., then running away was captured. Police killed Breonna Taylor and John Lewis, the late Congressman, in a shooting near by.
The video has not been released by police.
Sunday’s vandalism wasn’t the only one to target Floyd’s statue. Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police last year triggered a national movement for racial justice.
The statue was unveiled in Brooklyn on Juneteenth, but it was vandalized with black paint five days later and marked with an alleged logo belonging to a white supremacist group.
Local residents and Floyd’s brother helped to clean the statue after it was moved to Union Square.
