CAIR-Minnesota Calls for Probe of Possible Bias Motive for Man Bringing Dog Into St. Cloud Mosque

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 6/28/2019) – The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic relations (CAIR-MN) today called on law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for an intrusion into a St. Cloud, Minn., mosque by a man with a dog.

CAIR-MN said the white male entered the Central Minnesota Islamic Center yesterday evening with a large dog. The man wandered in the mosque and was seen by worshipers as he left. When leaving the mosque, the man pulled hair from the dog and threw it on the floor.

The intrusion was captured on video surveillance. Local police are investigating the incident.
