Los Angeles police have arrested a suspect for the vandalism of Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame star.

Trump’s star was vandalized and destroyed by a man dressed as a construction worker using a pickaxe early Wednesday morning.

A man named James Otis claimed responsibility for the crime in a video obtained by TMZ Wednesday. A new video, posted by ABC 7 Los Angeles on Thursday, shows Otis, out of breath after hacking away at the concrete star.

In the video, Otis admitted to the crime and explained that he did it to bring attention to sexual assault in America.
