Six people arrested after demonstrators deface monument and clash with police in New York City

Six people were arrested Thursday after demonstrators in New York City clashed with law enforcement and vandalized a prominent monument in Central Park.

Footage from the night showed the large statue defaced with red paint and tagged with derogatory phrases aimed at police.

“We respect’s (sic) everyone right to peacefully protest, but vandalism is not part of peaceful protest,” the New York Police Department wrote in a tweet. “We are working to de-escalate the situation to prevent further damage from occurring.”
