Seven armed men broke into the Musallah Fatah Mosque in Lenasia Johannesburg, tied up the lone security guard and locked him in the guard room, before stealing valuable items, including a television set and laptop.

Gauteng police have launched a hunt for the suspects who vandalised the mosque and wrote Islamophobic messages on the walls before fleeing.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo said the suspects fled in a stolen minibus.

In 2019, Lenasia CPF’s chairperson Ebrahim Asvat said it has successfully combatted crimes such as robberies and hijackings in these areas, where the 540 member-strong team maintains vigilance at all times.
