LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The D Casino and Hotel is looking for suspects who destroyed the replica of the Manneken Pis statue on the hotel grounds on Monday morning.

In a tweet, Derek Stevens, owner of the D, said a group of around nine vandals damaged the statue around 2:30 a.m. Monday. The figure is located on the hotel property on Third Street and Carson Avenue in front of the hotel’s valet parking in downtown Las Vegas.

D’s CEO Derek Stevens posted safety footage showing the group dancing around the statue and a person climbing onto the top of the replica. About thirty seconds later, the person at the top pulls the statue back until it collapses on the fountain. The group quickly leaves the scene, leaving the statue on the ground.

Stevens added that this is now an “active investigation”.

Manneken Pis is Belgian for “Little Man Pee” and the name of the statue, a large format bronze replica of the 17th century statue in Brussels, Belgium. Manneken Pis – – is a little boy who happily “relieves” himself in a fountain basin.

The play holds a special place in the lives of Stevens and his brother Greg, who frequented the statue in Brussels during their childhood and early adulthood.

The replica of the statue was brought to D in 2015. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police.
