REDDING, Calif. -  The Sundial Bridge, a popular Redding landmark was vandalized with graffiti Saturday night.

Police are looking into who may have vandalized the iconic Sundial Bridge. This comes in the wake of several protests across the country in response to George Floyd's death, Redding holding it's "march of freedom" Friday night.

Action News Now reporter Karen Alvarez joined us live from the vandalized section of the bridge. 

The Sundial Bridge across Turtle Bay Exploration Park has been "partially" cleaned up, there's still a little bit of that graffiti.

These photos were obtained from last night, portions of the images have been blurred because they were too graphic. The graffiti included the word "police" with an "X" on it with the words "I can't breath" below and the number 13-12 above it.

The graffiti also included male genitalia, the star of David, and a swastika.

Karen spoke to a woman who tells us she was disappointed to find out that the sundial bridge was vandalized.

Carmen Busbee: "It's sad because like Sundial was always a place to go to and look around. Come October they light the whole thing up pink and it's just a welcoming place and it makes Redding, Redding."

Redding Police Department officials tell us two good samaritans were there shortly after 8 a.m., cleaning up the mess.

Police couldn't give us an exact time frame of when this may have happened, saying they got a call shortly before 11 p.m., Saturday.

Police say they are looking into the video from surrounding cameras and are following up on leads.

RPD tells us Redding Parks and Recreation will be taking over sometime tomorrow to provide deep cleaning.

Police are asking if you know any details as to who may have done this, please call the Redding Police Department.
