They stormed the Church of Our Lady of Carmen (Diocese of Malaga) in the Spanish town of Rincon de la Victoria, Andalucia on Monday morning.
Spain’s Civil Guard has now launched a probe into the vandalism.
Last month a Moroccan man was arrested in the same town after allegedly trying to damage another statue of the Virgin Mary.

The 27-year-old repeatedly launched a large rock at a wall protecting the statue.
