fort collins» A van­dal struck the Is­lamic Cen­ter of Fort Collins early Sun­day, throw­ing rocks through win­dows and toss­ing a Bi­ble into the build­ing’s prayer room.

The in­ci­dent, which forced the can­cel­la­tion Sun­day of re­li­gious classes for chil­dren, drew quick con­dem­na­tion from an­ti­hate groups, Fort Collins Po­lice Chief John Hut­ton and U.S. Rep. Jared Po­lis.

Hut­ton called the van­dal­ism “un­ac­cept­able,” and he urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the crime to come for­ward. Po­lis said “it’s time for us to stand in unity. These acts must end.”

The Coun­cil on Amer­i­can-Is­lamic Re­la­tions called on Colorado and fed­eral law en­force­ment to in­ves­ti­gate the van­dal­ism as a pos­si­ble hate crime.
