Local paper, the Liverpool Echo, and online news site, Warrington Worldwide, report on an attack on a mosque in Warrington on Monday night.

The papers report that police have launched an investigation into a suspected case of racially aggravated criminal damage after racist abuse was shouted at Muslim worshippers and windows at the Jamiat-ul-Muslimeen mosque smashed late on Monday night. No one was injured in the attack.

Sergeant Rob Horton, of Warrington Town Centre Neighbourhood Policing Unit told the local paper, “Cheshire Police treat racially motivated crimes very seriously.”

“Enquiries are still ongoing and we would like to speak to anybody who may have witnessed or can provide any further information with regards to this incident.”

Police have appealed for a man seen outside Cromwell Court on Arpley Street, believed to be white, wearing an unzipped hooded top and riding a bicycle around 11.30pm on Monday to come forward to help with enquiries.

Police would also like to speak to two other men in connection with the incident. Both are described as white, 16-25 years of age, slim build, and wearing dark hooded tops. Anyone with information is asked to call 101. Alternatively, information can be passed via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
