It’s the end of the road for two suspects who launched an attack on George Washington Statue in Manhattan — adding red paint to the Monument.
A man and a woman were said to have fled on Citi Bikes after the act. Law enforcement sources said, noting there was surveillance video of the 3:20 a.m. incident.
The vandals also used white spray paint to draw the outlines of 24 people’s bodies around the park’s fountain — then tossed red balloons at their bodies, mainly their heads, making it appear as if they’d been shot.
Also left behind was the blue plastic cooler with wheels that the suspects used to tote the balloons. It still had red paint in it when cops found it.
Donald Trump In a Tweet, said the two Anarchists who threw paint on George Washington Statue will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison.
“We are tracking down the two Anarchists who threw paint on the magnificent George Washington Statue in Manhattan. We have them on tape. They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act. Turn yourselves in now! “
