Police in Maplewood are searching for two suspects who vandalized the outside of a mosque. 

Surveillance cameras caught the two suspects in the act of damaging the exterior of the Islamic Institute of Minnesota Alsalam Mosque at 1460 Skillman Avenue in Maplewood. They spray painted "666" with an image, "Jesus saves" with a cross and another nasty comment that said "F--- 69." 

The crime took place around 1:30 a.m. on July 29.  

“This type of crime is unacceptable and has no place in Maplewood,” said Maplewood Public Safety Director Scott Nadeau. “We encourage anyone with information to call us so we can work together to solve this crime.”

Police are asking for anyone who can help identify the suspects to call 651-767-0640.
