Hate crimes detectives are investigating the second incident in a week where a jar of nails was thrown onto the driveway of a Long Island mosque.
Suffolk County police received a call at about 7:45 p.m. Monday that shards of glass and nails were found outside the Masjid Noor mosque in Huntington. No other damage to the property, nor injuries, were reported.
A similar incident involving a jar of nails occurred last Wednesday.
A mosque official told Newsday in Tuesday’s editions that other vandalism has occurred in recent months, but police were only contacted for the first time last week.
