CCTV footage released of three suspects as Harlow Islamic Centre targeted in arson attack
Wednesday 28 August 2013
Police have released CCTV footage of three men suspected of an arson attack on an Islamic centre.
Officers were alerted to the incident by leaders of the Harlow Islamic Centre in Essex at 6.30am on Monday after they attended early morning prayers and found insulation foam sprayed under all of the shutters which cover the doors and windows.
The video footage shows three men approaching the building in Paringdon Road at 1.24am.
One of the men is seen to be holding a drill while another can be seen with what police believe to be a canister of insulation foam.
Superintendent Trevor Roe said: "It is clear from the CCTV footage this was a premeditated, deliberate attempt to cause serious damage to the Islamic centre.
"The three men come equipped to carry out the damage and also take everything they brought with them away again.
"We urge anyone who is able to identify the men to contact us as soon as possible. We are determined to find those people responsible."
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at Harlow CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
