The local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will be responding Tuesday after a hit-and-run incident damaged a prayer space at the Muslim American Youth Foundation in Burien.

Suspect arrested in Islamic Center of Tacoma arson

Pierce County detectives arrested a 38-year-old man in connection with an arson at the Islamic Center of Tacoma in University Place earlier this month.

It left extensive damage and the car’s bumper and hubcap were still at the scene. 

CAIR said this is the fifth Islamic center that has been targeted in the past four months.

Officials said they will hold a news conference in response to the incident Tuesday morning outside the Muslim American Youth Foundation.
