Man charged after mosque vandalized


A 26-year-old man has been charged with mischief against a place of worship after a Montreal mosque was the target of vandalism Tuesday.

Gavin Johnson appeared in court on the single charge.

Officers found broken windows at the front and side of the Tawuba mosque and arrested a man nearby.

The incident follows a similar one on Feb. 2, when the Khadijah mosque was vandalized. A 50-yearold man has pleaded not guilty to one count of public mischief in that case.
