A Milpitas mosque vandalized last month suffered further damage and a burglary this month.
Milpitas Police Department is classifying the crimes at Masjid Dar Al-Salaam at 90 Dempsey Road as vandalism and burglary, though a Muslim organization believes the incidents should be investigated as hate crimes.
The latest incident at the mosque, which is located in a strip mall, took place between midnight and approximately 5 a.m. June 3.
That night, someone smashed a glass window on the south side of the building and stole money from several donation boxes inside the mosque, according to Milpitas police Detective Pete Prolo. [Link]
