Police in a coastal North Carolina city are looking for a woman who they say vandalized two Confederate statues.

Wilmington police tell news outlets that someone threw orange paint onto the statues sometime Thursday morning. Two years ago, the same statues were vandalized following a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Workers spent part of the day cleaning the paint off the two statues. Police released surveillance video of a woman they say is responsible for the vandalism.
