LAFAYETTE - Police are investigating after a 9/11 memorial in downtown Lafayette was vandalized.
Police say graffiti and two cardboard cutout images of crashing planes were placed at the monument early Wednesday morning.
KATC TV reports that the 9/11 monument is a 1-by-100 scale of both the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
It includes three beams from the World Trade Center, limestone from the Pentagon, and soil from the Pennsylvania field where Flight 93 crashed.
The monument was dedicated on September 11, 2002, one year after the terrorist attacks.
