Woman busted for vandalizing St. Patrick’s Cathedral on New Year’s Day


A woman was busted this week for spraying graffiti on St. Patrick’s Cathedral during a protest on New Year’s Day, cops said.

Chriselle Vega, 20, was arrested Tuesday night for marring the facade of the landmark church with the letters “ACAB” — which stands for “All Cops Are Bastards,” only hours into the new year, authorities said. 

Video reviewed by investigators showed that Vega wore a pink cape as she sprayed the letters on the church in pink, according to police sources. She later confronted cops on scene, who at the time were unaware of her actions, the sources said.

Police recognized her during a protest at Washington Square Park around 10:50 p.m. Tuesday, according to the sources. 

Vega, of the Bronx, admitted to the act, the sources said. She was charged with making graffiti, cops said.
