Police said a man wrapped raw bacon on the door of a local mosque this past weekend.

Police are investigating the incident at Masjid Tawheed, the mosque located near Jones Boulevard and Twain Avenue, as a possible hate crime since pork or bacon are forbidden in Islam both to eat and touch.

In surveillance video of the incident, a man is seen stringing the raw bacon onto the doors and door handles.
