‘Bewitched’ statue in Salem, Massachusetts vandalized in red paint

The “Bewitched” statue, a landmark in the town of Salem, Massachusetts, was vandalized with red paint on Monday. The 6-foot-tall bronze statue at the corner of Essex and Washington streets pays homage to the famous 1960s television sitcom “Bewitched” and the filming of its seventh season in Salem. The ‘Bewitched’ statue depicts Elizabeth Montgomery, the actress who played lead character Samantha Stephens, riding a broomstick next to a crescent moon. Photos shared by eyewitness Tim Keough show part of the statue depicting Montgomery’s face and torso covered in red paint. NewsCenter 5 has contacted the Salem Police Department and the Salem Mayor’s Office for more details on the incident, but has not yet received a response.
