LONG ISLAND, New York / CNN — Police on Long Island are looking for whoever is responsible for vandalizing a mosque, burning a sacred flag and spray painting pro-Trump graffiti on it’s marble base.
It happened around 2 a.m. Monday at the Islamic Center of Suffolk County on 3rd Street in Brentwood.
Two people cut through a fence to enter the facility, defaced the flag base, and set fire to the flag, Suffolk County police said.
“It looks like it was pre-meditated,” acting Suffolk County Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron said. “Someone had to cut through the fence.”
