Police are trying to determine who vandalized a mosque and school in Newark.
Investigators believe it happened early Friday morning at the Islamic Society of Delaware’s community center in Newark. Vandals tore down a fence and used rocks to damage a digital sign. Pieces of the fence were used to make a cross on the property.
Delaware State Police and the FBI are investigating the case.
On Monday, the group CAIR-Philadelphia will hold a news conference to respond to the vandalism.
The Islamic Society of Delaware has about 2,000 members. Officials say this is the first time the facility has been vandalized in 25 years.
