Child of Ithaca Suspect

Suspect responsible for stealing cup from Child of Ithaca statue. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Ithaca Police Department

The Ithaca Police Department is currently investigating vandalism to the Child of Ithaca statue on The Commons. The iconic statue is of a woman sitting at a table with a cup in her hand, and was built in remembrance of Erin Schlather, a local woman who died in a car accident in 2004.

Video surveillance from April 21 at about 9:55 p.m., an unknown subject approaches the statue and removes the cup from the table, running away in an easterly direction.

The suspect in question is a white male, about 20 years old, average build with dark colored hair. The cost of replacing the cup and repairing the stature is about $1,500 dollars. IPD is asking anyone with information that would aid to this investigation to contact them at 607-330-0000 or their anonymous online tip email.
