The New York Daily News reports:
A skateboarding vandal was caught on video released Monday tossing paint on the George Floyd statue in Union Square.
The incident happened 10:15 a.m. Sunday, with the suspect riding up to the statue, slinging paint from a can, then casually skateboarding away, the video shows.
It was the second time the memorial was vandalized. In June, four men wearing bandannas spray-painted a white supremacist graffiti on the statue, which at the time was displayed at Flatbush Junction in Brooklyn.
