The Metropolitan Police have released CCTV of a man they would like to speak with following criminal damage to the windows of a mosque in Shoreditch, east London.
Officers responded to calls of religiously and/or religiously aggravated criminal damage to the windows of the Shoreditch Mosque on Redchurch Street last week (May 18) at around 6:45 pm.
The Met Police statement mentions that a man damaged the mosque’s windows after throwing bottles at it – with no injuries to worshippers reported.
The Met’s Central East Command Unit is leading the investigation as their local faith officer continues to liaise with representatives from the mosque as they increase reassurance patrols in the area.
