Washington - First there was a naked Donald Trump statue. Now there's a statue of a topless, hoofed Hillary Clinton.

The life-size statue of the Democratic presidential nominee appeared outside a subway station on Tuesday in lower Manhattan.

It wasn't immediately clear who created the statue, but it caused quite a stir. Video by the New York Daily News showed it knocked down, with a woman stomping and at one point sitting on top of it to prevent others from putting it upright.

In August, an artist similarly displayed a naked statue of Donald Trump outside another Manhattan subway stop. It was removed because it wasn't permitted.

Police and city officials haven't said why and how the Clinton statue was removed.

Clinton's campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Meanwhile, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence is using campaign stops in battleground North Carolina to aid recovery efforts after Hurricane Matthew battered the state's southeast quadrant.

Aides said the Indiana governor is bringing bulk canned food and other items to his Tuesday afternoon rally in Wilmington. The city was in the storm's direct path. Supporters attending an evening rally in Fayetteville are being asked to bring non-perishable food items, as well.

Pence's visit to the state comes two days after a local Republican Party office in Orange County, North Carolina, was damaged by a Molotov cocktail thrown through a window. No one was in the office at the time.

Local Republicans resumed operations on Monday outside their damaged office.
