(WFLX) - A statue of a slain civil rights leader targeted by hate, but the act was caught on camera.

Hollywood police want to find three teens responsible for defacing a Martin Luther King Jr. statue. The vandals sprayed white paint all over the bust placed in tribute to the civil rights leader.

The 200-pound bronze statue was unveiled two months ago at Hollywood's Arts Park in the downtown area. A witness at the park says he noticed them walking up to the statue.

Police think the suspects are about 17.
