The George Floyd memorial statue in Union Square was vandalized by a skateboarder who doused it in silver paint Sunday morning, cops said.
The footage shows him then taking off on his skateboard while throwing the paint on Floyd’s bust, the spokesman said. Police are not planning on releasing the video, he said.
The statue was recently moved to the Manhattan park.
The nearby statues of Lewis and Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old black woman who was shot and killed by Louisville, Ky. police in last year, were not touched.
In June, the Floyd statue was smeared with black paint and tagged with the phrase “Patriot Front” — a white nationalist hate group.
