Persons of interest sought in toppling of Ten Commandments statue

October 2, 2013

D.C. police have released surveillance video of two men described as persons of interest in the last month’s toppling of a large Ten Commandments statue owned by an evangelical advocacy group near the U.S. Supreme Court.

The video shows the men walking across the street and along a sidewalk. It does not say when the video was taken. The statue was toppled shortly after 3 a.m. on Sept. 21 outside Faith and Action, a ministry to Capitol Hill workers in the 100 block of Second Street NE.

The video shows two men casually walking side-by-side. Both are white; one is wearing a blue shirt and light-colored pants and the other a red shirt and dark pants. No other description was available.

Police ask anyone with information to call 202-727-9099 or text the department’s tip line at 50411.

The president of Faith and Action said last month that the group opposes filing criminal charges against the people who toppled the statue, and instead said it would invite them to a meal and a discussion about religion.
