Police are investigating a vandalism -- the third incident in less than 14 months -- at the Islamic Society of Frederick.
Police aren't sure whether the vandalism could be considered a hate crime until a suspect is identified and the motive is revealed. Yahya Hendi, imam of the Islamic Society, is also reluctant to say if he believes the incident is a hate crime until someone is caught.
Hendi said no one was inside the building on Key Parkway at about 5:30 p.m. Feb. 21, when someone threw rocks and shattered two of the building's roughly 4-foot high clear glass windows. Shards of glass littered the inside of the prayer hall, Hendi said. [Link]
