The photos of the incident first surfaced on a Reddit thread. They show an unidentified man inserting battery-operated red LEDs to the eyes so as to make them glow in the dark. Previously, the San Francisco Arts Commission has had to deal with many instances of thieves stealing the spectacles from the statue. But this incident is said to be a first.
