The New York Police Department is investigating after a woman destroyed two statues outside a church in Queens.
The incident happened at Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church in Forest Hills.
The woman destroyed two 84-year-old statues of the Blessed Mother Mary and St. Therese the Little Flower. The statues were initially put up in 1937 and have been on display outside since.
Surveillance footage showed that the subject was female, but she has yet to be identified.
The incident happened at around 3:30 am on Saturday. The subject in question dragged two figures out of the church facility, then broke them outside on 70th Avenue and spat upon their remains.
Someone had previously knocked over the statues earlier that week. Local law enforcement suspects that the same person did both.
