A man in New Jersey is under arrest for taking a sledgehammer to a memorial dedicated the victims of sexual abuse.

Gordon Ellis was arrested for allegedly smashing the 400-pound stone memorial outside St. Joseph church in Mendham into pieces last Friday.

But police don't have a motive.

The memorial was dedicated in 2004 near the residence of a priest who admitted to molesting a dozen children.
