vandalism at a south Nashville Islamic Center. An underwear-clad vandal
caused considerable damage inside and outside the building.
Metro Police say the call came out after 2 a.m. at the Al-Farooq Islamic Center at 1421 4th Ave S.
Police say the suspect seems to have entered through a window and was possibly intoxicated. The suspect was seen by witnesses fleeing the scene in only white boxer shorts.
Police do not have a motive, and do not believe the break-in to be a hate crime. The Islamic Center does not have surveillance video.
This incident coincides with the vandalism of the center on Feb. 10, 2010 - almost three years to the date. An arrest was never made in the 2010 vandalism.
Meetings planned for this morning have been moved to upstairs. Police say security has been increased.
Anyone with information can call police at 862-8600 or CrimeStoppers at 74 CRIME.
