Graffiti at mosque

Graffiti at mosque


Police are appealing for information after an Ipswich mosque was vandalised.


Graffiti was sprayed onto the side of the building in St Helen’s Street sometime between 10.30pm on April 25 and 3pm on April 27.

The words ‘Task Vandal’ have been sprayed onto the wall in white paint and an image of this has been released by police.

They are asking anyone who recognises it to come forward and call PCSO Antony Ramirez on 101 quoting IC/14/1686.



  • I see the police have only put a PCSO on the case not a proper police officer,the real ones are after drivers easy pickings,

  • Check the National Graffiti Database for work with a similar style, technique, material, location, etc. That's much more likely to yield useful information than a space-filler in the local rag. If any of the artist's other work has been recorded, it should make it easier to attribute this example. However, this may be a one-off piece as it is clearly not the work of an accomplished artist.

  • It HAS been noted that on the jewellery theft story on here there is no comment facility and also the obvious fact in the descriptions that both women are blatantly Asian in appearance - more multicultural censorship? What good is a half description, pray do tell.......??!!

  • Hardly major crime for such swift police action. Friend of mine had a car broken into and chased the culprits off. Many hours later, the next day, the police arrived with a polaroid camera and no film in it !!
