The newest hotel of businessman and Republican nominee Donald Trump, located in Washington, was the site of vandalism over the weekend, according to D.C. police.

WRC-TV reports that a man in a yellow shirt and a hat walked straight up to the hotel's entrance and vandalized the building's face. Police are still searching for that man, according to WRC.

The hotel attempted to cover the graffiti with wooden boards. The graffiti was signed by someone named "Van."

According to Politico, the hotel operates under special requirements imposed by its 60-year lease with the federal government, given the historic nature of the building, which is known as the Old Post Office and Clock Tower.
