Officers are investigating after a sculpture in a downtown Wichita park was found vandalized.

The "Heritage Woman" sculpture resides in Heritage Park, near the intersection of Main and William.

A passerby discovered the damaged sculpture today, which was broken from its base and split in half.

City officials are still trying to determine when the vandalism may have occurred and how much it will cost to repair.

The "Heritage Woman" was sculpted by Salina artist Richard Bergen. The Junior League of Wichita donated it to the city in 1976.

Anyone who may have information on this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (316) 267-2111.
