Suspect Nabbed for Tossing Rocks into Mosque; Seen on Video Hurling Objects into Prayer Area

Police arrested a 35-year-old man, suspected of throwing rocks and a Bible at a Colorado mosque, the CNN website reports today (March 28, 2017).

Surveillance video captured a person overturning benches, breaking windows, and hurling objects into the prayer area of the Islamic Center at Fort Collins, police said. The incident occurred around 4 a.m. on March 26.

Fort Collins police arrested the suspect last night.

"We will not tolerate acts of hatred in our community, and I hope this arrest sends that message loud and clear," said Police Chief John Hutto in a statement.
