The Grand Junction Police Department is seeking assistance from the public in identifying the suspect involved in the vandalism of a local mosque.
At approximately 11:00pm on Tuesday, September 17th, a suspect was captured on video approaching the Islamic Center of Grand Junction, at 801 Gunnison Avenue, and defacing a sign with spray paint. The suspect also damaged flowers in a flower bed at the base of the sign. Photos of the suspect, as well as the vehicle believed to be associated to him, are included. We know that the quality of the photos isn’t ideal, but someone likely knows something, and we’d ask that the community share this information so we can hold the suspect in this case accountable.
