Vandals splattered black paint over Harlem's BLM mural on Saturday night.

A woman who was seen defacing the Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower on Saturday afternoon struck again later that day—this time in Harlem.

Streaks of black paint covered the mural on Sunday.

Bevelyn Beatty posted a livestream video on Saturday night that showed her and a group driving and throwing black paint over the BLM mural on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard between W 125th Street and W 127th Streets.

"We're taking our county back," she said in the Facebook video. "The police need our help, they can't stand alone. Don't just sit by idly and watch your country go to the ground. Stand with your police force. Vote for Trump, vote Republican, vote for Christians."

On Sunday, splatters of black paint marred the mural that had been painted with the help of Harlem artists earlier this month. A few cans of black paint still stood on the road.
