Police are looking for a teen girl who they say was caught on camera defacing a sand sculpture in a luxury Hawaiian resort Monday night.

Surveillance video at the iconic Royal Hawaiian hotel shows a girl climb over a barrier in front of the sculpture and knock off the head of one of the carved bodies. She then rips the nose off of another and claws at the sculpture.

After climbing down from the barrier, she throws a green pillow and another object at the sculpture. She leaves with another person, who was seen recording the incident on their phone.

The teen is a Hawaii resident, authorities said.

The Royal Hawaiian is famous for its pink exterior and is nicknamed "The Pink Palace of the Pacific." It's served as the backdrop to several movies, including "Punch-Drunk Love" starring Adam Sandler.
