Police investigating vandalism at Nashua mosque

NASHUA — Police are investigating an act of vandalism at a Nashua mosque that occurred Sunday night.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations confirmed reports Monday that rocks were thrown through windows at the 5 Pine Street Extention center while people were worshiping inside around 8 p.m.

NPD Lt. Craig Allard said there was a report of three youths throwing rocks at a sign Mine Falls Park, which has an entrance located near the mosque, about 20 minutes prior to the incident. Allard said police are working to obtain security camera recordings of area businesses

CAIR wants the incident to be investigated as a hate crime.

"Whenever any house of worship is attacked in this manner, law enforcement authorities should investigate a possible bias motive for the crime," said CAIR-Massachusetts Executive Director Dr. John Robbins.
