KCBS_740

DAVIS (KCBS) – Authorities are investigating a hate crime after a surveillance camera captured a woman shattering windows and placing strips of uncooked bacon on a door handle of a Davis mosque.

The vandalism was discovered yesterday at the Islamic Center of Davis.

Many Muslims abstain from eating pork products. The Davis Police Department calls the attack a hate crime because of the bacon left behind.

Police describe the suspect as a white female adult with red or brown wavy hair, between 25 to 35 years old, standing 5'4" to 5'8" tall, weighing about 160 to 180 pounds. The suspect was seen wearing beige high-top shows, gray or blue pants, a white vest and black cap during the incident.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the suspect.
