ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Police Department is asking for the public's help in investigating five reports of damage to property at and around Islamic faith centers in the city.

St. Cloud police say the damage happened from Nov. 7 to Dec. 3 in the 300 block of Fourth and Fifth avenues on the south side, according to a news release. Officials say the damage included broken windows to one of the buildings and broken windows on vehicles parked outside one of the centers.

None of the victims were present at the time, and no one has been injured.

The police's Community Crime Impact Team is leading the investigation using video surveillance, extra patrols and plain clothes officers, according to the news release.

"Although the motive and intent of these crimes has not yet been determined, the fact that this number of incidents has occurred over this period of time is troubling and will not be tolerated," the news release stated.
