BROOKLYN - Police are searching for suspects after someone destroyed an angel outside a Catholic church in Williamsburg.

Parishioners from Our Lady of Consolation Church on Metropolitan Avenue discovered the 5-foot tall statue knocked off its base and shattered on the ground sometime before 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Churchgoers say that unfortunately it isn't the first time statues outside their place of worship have been vandalized.

Investigators are urging anyone with information about the crime to come forward.
