Portland police are looking for those responsible for smashing six windows of the Ahram Halal Market on Forest Ave.
A witness told police they saw a man with what looked like a baseball bat smashing the windows around 11:00 pm.
Police say they’ve had difficulty finding any leads due to poorly lit security footage and only a vague description of the suspect as a man in dark clothing.The business owner says nothing was taken.
Customers are sad that something like this would happen here. “It’s a very racially diverse community and I’m really sorry to hear that. Good people here of all colors and it’s a shame,” says customer Evan Andrews.
The council on American-Islamic Relations says it’s important for authorities to investigate the possibility of anti-Muslim bias as a motivation for the crime.
