Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Mosque in Chantilly Vandalized

CHANTILLY, Va. (CBSDC)  A mosque under construction in Chantilly was damaged by vandals Sunday night just , weeks before it was set to open.

Matt DelSignore reports

There was no evidence that the vandals entered the building, according to Fairfax County Police, but there was significant damage to the outside of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Mosque, as windows were smashed and rocks were thrown.

Police also said many alcohol containers were found at the scene. The damages are estimated to be between $60,000 and $80,000.

Although detectives and bloodhounds spent seven hours at the scene Monday, there is no word of any suspects yet, WNEW’s Matt DelSignore reported.

Nearby neighbors had complained about the project, but police are not calling this a hate crime, Delsignore reported.
