Police in Edmond, Oklahoma have not identified any suspects in connection with the reported placement of raw bacon on the door handles of a mosque.

Muslims are prohibited from consuming bacon and other pork products.

Officers were called Sunday afternoon to the Islamic Society of Edmond, where a mosque trustee reported that “someone put uncooked bacon on the door handles of the men’s and women’s mosques” earlier in the day.
