Two people were arrested for their involvement in vandalizing the Black Lives Matter street mural in front of Trump Tower Saturday.
The mural was vandalized twice in one day.
In the first incident, black paint was splattered all over the mural just after 3 p.m. Saturday.
Authorities say a 42-year-old man threw paint on the mural later in the day just before 6 p.m.
One officer was injured after slipping on the paint that was poured on the mural. He injured his arm and his head and was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
