Cops busted a Queens resident early Saturday in connection to the desecration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral during a George Floyd protest last weekend, according to police, who released photos of two others accused vandals still on the loose.
Yadir Avila Rosas, 26, was taken into custody at 5:30 a.m., an NYPD spokeswoman told The Post.
Rosas, who is scheduled to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court in the afternoon, was charged with criminal mischief in the third degree and making graffiti, police said.
Authorities allege Rosas was the “getaway driver” in the tagging of the famous cathedral on May 30 at 5 p.m.
Cops are still looking for two female suspects who did the tagging.
The graffiti on one wall at Fifth Avenue and 51st Street read “F–k F–k” in red letters. On an adjacent wall, vandals scrawled “BLM” — for Black Lives Matter — along with “NYPDK” in red letters and “No Justice No Peace” in black letters.
And part of the stairs was spray-painted with “George Floyd” in black letters.
The sacrilegious ink was more than likely etched at some point during last weekend’s march down Fifth Avenue.
