D.C. police release video of persons of interest in toppling of Ten Commandments statue
D.C. police released video Wednesday of two men wanted in connection with the vandalism of a statue of the Ten Commandments that sits across the street from the U.S. Supreme Court at the headquarters of an evangelical Christian group.
The video, taken the night the 850-pound stone was toppled, shows two men crossing the street and then walking along a sidewalk near the 100 block of Second Street in Northeast D.C. Footage from three separate cameras, from around 3 a.m. on Sept. 21., captured the pair as they passed the area but the montage released by police does not show them vandalizing the stone.
The stone slab sat in the front yard of the Christian group Faith and Action on a block protected by U.S. Capitol Police, Metropolitan Police Department and a guard house near the Supreme Court building that is staffed 24 hours a day. It was secured in the ground with a steel reinforced rod and the Christian group’s director said it would have taken leverage and “herculean amount of strength” to topple it.
Both men are white and one wore a blue shirt and light-colored pants and the other a red shirt and dark pants. Police have classified the crime as destruction of property. Officials from Faith and Action believe it could cost $10,000 to replace.
