A vandal attacked the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of CBS’s "Late Show With David Letterman," just days after a similar attack, reports the New York Daily News.
Early Thursday, an apparent copycat culprit took aim at the theater, hurling a red metal amNewYork newspaper box at the Broadway entrance at about 1 a.m. The door suffered major damage.
A security guard immediately apprehended the alleged vandal, who was identified as Alvin Moore of Sebring, Fla. Moore has a criminal history in the state of Florida, including a domestic violence battery charge from May 2010.
Moore incurred a head wound and was treated at St. Luke’s Hospital before being charged with third-degree criminal mischief and menacing.
Said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, commenting on the suspect: "He was jealous of the publicity the first individual got on Monday. He said he hoped it would help his music career."
