$1,000 reward offered in Virgin Mary vandalism case
Police are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the capture of a man suspected of vandalizing statues of the Virgin Mary in Yonkers.
Authorities hope the reward will lead to information about the suspect, who was apparently captured on surveillance video defacing one of 12 statues he spray painted in the Yonkers area.
"An attack on one faith is an attack on every faith," says Yonkers Police Commissioner Edmund Hartnett.
Yonkers police are pursuing the case as a hate crime.
