GREENWICH VILLAGE, Lower Manhattan (WABC) — Three men are now facing charges in connection with the destruction of Pride flags back in June.
Broken and damaged rainbow flags were found on the ground at the Stonewall National Monument over the summer.
One of the first incidents happened on June 10 at around 3 a.m. at the site on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village.
A few days later, even more flags had been broken and thrown on the ground. Officials say dozens were destroyed by suspects seen on surveillance video.
Authorities say 25-year-old Patrick Murphy was arrested in August. Now, Jackson Randall and Charles Hyder have also been arrested.
All three suspects are charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime, authorities said.
