A second photo of a St. Paul police officer dressed in a Muslim hijab has surfaced online on Friday where the officer appears to have been wearing blackface makeup, news sources reported.
After the photos surfaced, St. Paul Police Chief Thomas Smith opened an internal affairs investigation, the Pioneer Press reported.
The first photo that surfaced on Twitter Sunday showed k-9 officer Robert Buth dressed in a red hijab wearing a Target name tag, according to the Star Tribune.
Buth issued a public apology Tuesday and said the photo "may have been viewed to be insensitive to the Muslim community," as stated in the Pioneer Press.
The two photos were apparently taken at Halloween parties in 2010 and 2012, according to the Star Tribune.
