MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette Police Department requests the public’s help in identifying two men who were responsible for damage to the Phil Niemisto Statue in Downtown Marquette.

The police department posted two photos on Facebook Tuesday morning. The statue’s hands appear to have been removed. No further information was released.

If you have information, you are asked to send a private Facebook message or call 906-228-0400.

The statue, in the 100 block of West Washington St., was revealed in October 2017 in honor of the beloved man who volunteered for decades as a window washer.
