George Floyd memorial statue in New York City defaced again

NEW YORK (AP). Police said that a statue in 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. The statues of Breonna Taylor (a Louisville, Kentucky woman who was shot and killed last year by police) and John Lewis, the late Congressman, were not touched.

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 Floyds brothers helped clean the statue before it was moved to Union Square in Manhattan.
