CALIFORNIA– A vandalism suspect turned himself in after he allegedly used a pickax to destroy President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame early Wednesday morning.
According to witnesses, a man removed the pickax from a guitar case about 3 a.m. and began swinging it at the star on Hollywood Boulevard, located in front of the Hollywood & Highland center.
The suspect surrendered to Beverly Hills police at about 4:30 a.m. His identity was not disclosed.
In November 2016, days before the presidential election, Trump’s star was similarly vandalized by a man dressed as a construction worker who used a sledgehammer and pickax. That man said he was protesting Trump’s treatment of women.
The motive for Wednesday’s incident is unknown.
