(KSL News) Plenty of questions for police after a man vandalizes a statue on the grounds of a temple in California.

Police in San Fransisco say a man defaced a statue at a temple owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter -day Saints in Oakland.

He somehow got into the temple visitor's center and used something to smash the fingers off the statue. A witness tells KSL it was a statue of Jesus Christ -- but that has not been confirmed.

Police arrested the man a short time later. The Church has not commented on the incident.
