Man arrested after stone attack on Bletchley mosque

A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence after stones were thrown at a mosque in Bletchley.

Police were called at 3.29am yesterday, following reports of a man throwing stones and threatening the occupants at the mosque, located in Manor Road. The incident occurred just a couple of months after another mosque in Bletchley had been attacked, following the death of Drummer Lee Rigby.

Investigating officer Detective Inspector Dave Dachtler said: “A man has been arrested and is currently in custody where he will be questioned later today (Sunday). We will not tolerate any kind of hate crime in our community and we always treat any occurrences extremely seriously.”
