He tried to flee the scene but police caught him. He will appear before a judge at a later date.
The child-sized statue of the sad-eyed, sword-wielding king stood in a niche between two horseshoe-shaped arches at the entrance to the station. Completed in 1890, the station is a protected monument.
Dom Sebastiao, who ruled between 1557 and 1578, is a tragic figure in Portuguese history, dying in battle at the age of 24 during a crusade of his own making in Morocco.
His body was never properly identified, giving rise to a legend that the king would one day return to claim his throne and save Portugal in times of trouble.
