The Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C, was vandalized in broad daylight with Black Lives Matter graffiti.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s 263-room hotel in the nation’s capital was deemed fair game for defacement Saturday. Police are looking for a black male in a yellow shirt and a blue hat who wrote “Black Lives Matter” and “No justice, [no peace]” on Pennsylvania Avenue’s former Old Post Office building.

Video that appeared on Twitter showed onlookers who said, “Black Lives Matter!” and warned the man that police were being called.

“The matter is under investigation, and we have no comment at this time,” Patricia Tang, the director of sales and marketing for the Trump International Hotel in D.C., told a local NBC affiliate Sunday. The graffiti has since been covered with wooden planks.

Trump International Hotel had a soft opening in September, but will officially open its doors in late October.
