NASHUA, N.H. — Police in Nashua, New Hampshire, say worshippers at a mosque saw three juveniles walking away from the building after a rock was thrown through a window.

Police say 20 minutes before the rock was thrown at the Islamic Society of Greater Nashua at 8:15 p.m. Sunday, police received a report of three juveniles throwing rocks at a city park sign nearby.

Police are investigating the incident. There was no word of injuries.

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate the incident as a possible hate crime. It happened on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The mosque is located in a former mill building.
