Police in Edmond, Oklahoma have not identified any suspects in connection with the reported placement of raw bacon on the door handles of a mosque.
Officers were called Sunday afternoon to the Islamic Society of Edmond, where a mosque trustee reported that “someone put uncooked bacon on the door handles of the men’s and women’s mosques” earlier in the day.
Muslims are prohibited from consuming bacon and other pork products.
The mosque official, who contacted police at 4 PM, told officers that the vandalism was discovered at 10 AM. An Edmond Police Department report does not indicate why six hours passed before the incident was reported to law enforcement.
