The Kamehameha statue in downtown Honolulu appeared to have been desecrated overnight. Its lei were pulled down and offerings at the base of the statue had been tampered with.

The Honolulu Police Department received a call at around 2 a.m. and has launched an investigation. There is no suspect at this time.

The statue and its surrounding area looked fine just in time for the Kamehameha Day festivities.
