A man forcibly entered the Dallas Museum of Art after hours and destroyed a number of pieces because he was "mad at his girl."

On Wednesday night, a man forced his way into the Dallas Museum of Art after hours and proceeded to go on a rampage, destroying $5 million in art and other property.

The motive behind the crime? He was "mad at his girl."

The museum released a statement on Thursday morning following the incident.

"June 1, after Museum hours, an individual forcibly entered the Dallas Museum of Art," it began. "Museum security responded immediately and Dallas Police took the individual into custody at the scene. No one was harmed, and the individual was not carrying weapons."

"This was an isolated incident perpetrated by one individual acting alone, whose intent was not theft of art or any objects on view at the Museum. However, some works of art were damaged, and we are still in the process of assessing the extent of the damages. While we are devastated by this incident, we are grateful that no one was harmed."

The museum went on the assure visitors that there is no ongoing safety risk, and that operations would resume as planned.

According to The Dallas Morning News, 21-year-old Brian Hernandez dialed 911 and confessed to the crime as soon as police arrived on scene.

Hernandez reportedly told a security guard that "he got mad at his girl so he broke in and started destroying property."

Hernandez is currently being held at Dallas County Jail, and faces charges of criminal mischief of more than or equal to $300,000.
