NYC: Four suspects sought for vandalizing George Floyd statue in NYC

Police released footage of four suspects wanted for vandalizing the newly installed George Floyd statue with white nationalist graffiti in Brooklyn.

The East Flatbush statue, which was unveiled last week during a Juneteenth celebration, was defaced at about 4 a.m. Thursday.

The phrase “Patriot Front” — a white nationalist hate group — was painted over the inscription, police said.

Black spray paint was also smeared across the sculpture.

The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the vandalism.
