SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - An Abraham Lincoln statue in Spokane has been vandalized with red paint.

The paint appears to have been applied late Wednesday or early Thursday, the Spokane Police Department said.

Police said there are no suspects and the motive for the vandalism isn’t clear.

The statue erected in 1930 is 12 feet (4 meters) high and cost $25,000 at the time.

The Spokane Historical Society says Sen. John F. Kennedy gave a speech at the statue in 1960 during his successful run to become president.
