A California mosque received a message on their voicemail service Friday afternoon from an individual who threatened to “drop a bomb” on the mosque, community Muslim leaders said Monday.
The incident at the Islamic Center of Tustin was reported to the Tustin Police Department on Sunday, said Sgt. Mike Van Cleve.
“It appears there was no caller ID on the call,” he said. “We took a report and are investigating.”
A spokesman for the mosque did not return phone calls Monday.
The voicemail is among several threats Southern California mosques have received over the past few weeks, said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles chapter, or CAIR-LA, which is based in Anaheim.
