The male pictured then allegedly "stuffed it into a trash can."

At the time of the incident, police say the woman was wearing a mask, a white t-shirt with a blue-gray long-sleeve shirt and black shorts. The man was wearing a black mask, camouflage pants, a red bandanna and a white graphic t-shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call 412-323-7201.

According to a Facebook page for the memorial, it pays tribute to law enforcement officers from Allegheny County who "made the ultimate sacrifice." It includes the names of officers who served or grew up in the county but lost their lives somewhere else.

The memorial was vandalized in March.
