Anti-Muslim threats posted near mosque in Upper Darby; suspect sought

UPPER DARBY, Pa. – Police in Upper Darby are seeking the public’s assistance to help locate a suspect caught on camera posting anti-Muslim signs near a mosque and Islamic education center.

Police recently released photos and surveillance video of the man suspected of hanging the posters.

The person of interest was wearing clad in a red aviator hat and coat with a NASA logo on it.

“We want to make sure that everyone understands that we are part of the community, just like the Muslim community is part of the community,” said Upper Darby Superintendent Mike Chitwood at the time.

“This is about opening the lines of communications, to show people across the country and around the world that it works.”

Police only released the video after efforts through are social service agencies didn’t lead investigators to the suspect, Chitwood said.

Saud Siddiqui, chairman of the Upper Darby Caring Foundation and member of Masjid Al-Madinah, said the Muslim community in Upper Darby represents “50 or 60” different languages.

“People come from all over – West Africans, Pakistanis, Indians and Muslims from everywhere, they come here. Very diverse, not only by color, but by location, by country, you name it,” Siddiqui said.

Anyone with information or who recognizes the sign man is asked to call 610-734-7693.
