Trenton fireman statue knocked from its base
TRENTON, N.J. - April 8, 2013 (WPVI) -- Trenton police have arrested a man for allegedly knocking a bronze statue of a firefighter in front of City Hall off its base and breaking the head off the monument.
Police say 28-year-old Kylike Fischer is charged with criminal mischief.
Officials tell The Trentonian the damage was done around noon Sunday.
An official with the Trenton Firemen's Benevolent Association says a witness told a security guard, who told police.
The statue is more than a century old and memorializes firefighters who died in the line of duty.
It's been moved to the Trenton Fire Department's museum so it will not be damaged further.
