Statues of Wayne Gretzky Vandalized in His Hometown

BRANTFORD, Ontario (AP) — Two new statues of hockey great Wayne Gretzky have been vandalized in his hometown.

Police in Brantford, Ontario, say they are studying a video sent to them of Monday’s overnight vandalism, which involved defacing the statues with spray paint.

Police say there have been no arrests. The statues were publicly unveiled Sunday outside the newly renovated Wayne Gretzky Sports Center. Crews were at the scene Tuesday, cleaning off the spray paint.

The statues depict Gretzky holding the Stanley Cup over his head in victory and his parents at his side in his youth.

Brantford Mayor Chris Friel calls the vandalism “disgraceful” and a “crime against the community.”
