RNA - Police in Fort Smith say vandalism has been found on a mosque and Islamic center in the western Arkansas city.

 

Sgt. Daniel Grubbs says the messages found Thursday morning on the Masjid Al Salam Mosque and the Fort Smith Islamic Center include profanity, phrases such as "Go Home" and "Go Back to Your Country" in addition to swastikas.

 

Grubbs says police are searching for three men seen shortly after 5 a.m. apparently spray-painting signs, a door, windows and a garage.

 

Grubbs said the vandals could face charges of harassment and criminal mischief and that the FBI is joining the investigation.

 

Mosque member Hisham Yasin told KHBS-TV that plans are to clean off the building on Friday.
