    • More LinkNYC kiosks have been vandalized sometime over the weekend

    • The digital screens along 10th Avenue between 49th and 52nd Streets appeared to have been smashed and shattered

    • The vandalism comes months after the NYPD arrested a 41-year-old man for doing the same thing in Chelsea

    More LinkNYC kiosks have been vandalized sometime last weekend — this time in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.

    The digital screens along 10th Avenue between 49th and 52nd Streets appeared to have been smashed and shattered. The vandalism comes months after the NYPD arrested a 41-year-old man for doing the same thing in Chelsea.

    It wasn't clear how many LinkNYC kiosks have been damaged in the area and so far, there are no suspects.

    In April, Juan Rodriguez was charged with several counts of third-degree criminal mischief in connection with the vandalism, the NYPD said.
