Christopher Columbus statue is beheaded in a Yonkers park

Not Released

On Monday, a statue of Columbus was found beheaded in a park in Yonkers, according to police.

The plaster, bronze-covered statue of the 15th century explorer was discovered in two pieces at Columbus Park this week in central Yonkers, News 12 reports.

The front of Columbus was found at the pedestal's base, while the back was discovered on a nearby hill.

"It's very upsetting that American values have sunken to the level they are today", Gamberdella told NBC.

"This all began as a result of discussion of Confederate "heroes" who rebelled against our country and so I think with regards to Christopher Columbus, it's a little bit more complicated and a little bit more nuanced and my position is the statue should remain", James continued. "But it appears just criminal mischief at this time", Yonkers Police Commissioner Charles Gardner told Westchester's News12.

"I will wait for the commission, as I said Christopher Columbus is a controversial figure to many of us particularly in the Caribbean and I think that that has to be looked at, when you have to look at history we have to look at it thoroughly and clearly", Mark-Viverito said earlier this month.

But they still plan to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident.

However, he said the statue will be among those reviewed by a yet-to-be-formed commission that will examine all monuments on city-owned land and come up with "one, single standard" for determining whether plaques or statues need to be removed, changed or stay the same.

The mayor initially indicated that he was weighing removing the statue, though he declined to comment on any specific statue during the first Democratic mayoral primary debate.
