THE STATUE of ex-slave and abolitionist icon Frederick Douglass was “torn off its base” and dumped 50 feet away in Rochester park.
The monument was removed over the weekend and placed over the fence to Genesee River gorge, WXXI news reported.
Cops told the outlet that, alongside the damage to the bottom of the statue, one of the fingers on the left hand was damaged.
The monument has since been removed for repairs.

The outlet reported that the statue is one of 13 Douglass statues that were placed around Rochester in 2018 to celebrate his 200th birthday.
In the first year of its erection, one of the statues was damaged, according to the outlet.
The removal took place on the same weekend that a statue of Christopher Columbus in Connecticut was decapitated and a Baltimore monument was toppled and tossed into the harbor.
