A statue of Christopher Columbus in New York City's Central Park was vandalized with spray paint and stickers, authorities said Tuesday.
The phrase “Hate will not be tolerated, something is coming" was spray painted in white across the statue, and Columbus' hands were painted red, the New York Police Department said. Several stickers that said “Save Your Soul” were also placed on the statue.
According to police, a Central Park Conservancy employee discovered the graffiti at 7 a.m. Tuesday. No arrests have been made.
