A statue of the Queen in Beacon Hill Park has been beheaded.
Police were called to an area of the park near the petting zoo just after noon Wednesday after receiving a report that the statue had been vandalized.
The head had been removed and has yet to be recovered. The incident comes after an overnight graffiti spree that included references to Beacon Hill Park, and police are looking into whether the two events are connected.
Call Victoria police at 250-995-7654, extension 1, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) with any information.
