A spokesman for National Heritage told EL MUNDO that the authors threw paint on the bronze statue and that same morning it was repaired by maintenance employees.
The events occurred first thing in the morning last Saturday. Several young people entered the gardens of Campo del Moro and went to the bronze statue of the monarch. They threw paint and one of them tried to write something on the pedestal while a girl recorded the action with a mobile phone.
However, the security guards quickly came out and managed to retain the youth. Two of them resisted forcefully and beat the guards, causing minor injuries, according to union sources. The same sources explain that the girl who recorded the images escaped. The five detained youths were reported by the Civil Guard for a crime of injury and a crime of lack of movable property (damage).
