27-year-old punk caught vandalizing Lyndhurst’s new September 11 Memorial

A man named Alfredo Acevedo was caught red-handed throwing stones at the new 9/11 Memorial in Lyndhurst Town Hall Park, causing dents, cracks, and other damage to the Memorial’s stonework and to the steel from the World Trade Center.

“Acevedo’s actions are despicable and beyond disrespectful. He should be more than ashamed of his actions, but what concerns me is that I don’t believe this young man feels that way,” Lt. Vincent Auteri of the Lyndhurst Police Department told Kevin A. Canessa Jr. of the Observer.

Acevedo was charged with criminal mischief, desecration of a monument and disorderly conduct. He is currently free on bail.
