LONG BEACH, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island are investigating the vandalism of a neighborhood 9/11 memorial.

Bill Murphy told Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1Np6VZR ) on Saturday that the structure in Long Beach was toppled overnight.

Murphy has tended the memorial for about a decade. It included plants, ceramic angels - and red bows around Christmastime.

He posted an angry handwritten note on a utility pole. It said the vandals are “morons” and “awful people.”

A neighbor, Patricia Wagner, said she was crying her eyes out over the incident.

Murphy vows that it will be rebuilt. People are offering to help him.
