An Islamic school in west suburban Lombard is at least the second Muslim institution to report an attack this past weekend.
The Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago says the College Preparatory School of America, an Islamic school at 331 W. Madison St. in Lombard, was subjected to vandalism on Sunday night.
The council says someone hurled a 7-Up bottle filled with acid and other unspecified materials at the school during the nighttime Ramadan prayers.
During the prayer session, worshipers heard a loud bang and went to find an empty bottle thrown on the window of the school. No one was injured.
No one was in custody as of just before noon Monday, and there were no suspects, Lombard police told CBS 2.
The latest incident comes just two nights after air rifle shots were fired at a mosque in north suburban Morton Grove.
