Police are using cell phone video in their hunt for a man who vandalized a Picasso painting at a Houston, Texas museum.

The vandal spray painted a picture of a bull, and the word 'Conquista,' Spanish for 'conquer,' under Picasso's 'Woman in a red armchair' last Wednesday. Another museumgoer shot video of the vandalism. He says the vandal told him he's a young Mexican American artist, who wanted to honor Picasso. The picture is being repaired.
