Authorities in Ithaca are currently investigating vandalism to the ‘Child of Ithaca’ statue that sits in the Ithaca Commons.
The statue features a woman sitting at a table with a cup in her hand.
Ithaca police say that video surveillance shows a man approach the statue, take the cup, and then run away.
He’s described as a white male around 20 years old with dark hair.
The cost to replace the cup is about $1,500. Ithaca police encourage anyone with information to contact them.
