A 16-year-old boy was arrested by police investigating a hate crime after pieces of ham were thrown at a mosque.
The teenager was held on suspicion of a religiously aggravated public order offence by officers called to Broadfield Mosque in Crawley, West Sussex.
Sussex Police said "real anguish and anxiety" was caused to worshippers who witnessed the incident as they left the mosque at around 4pm last Tuesday.
Eating pork and products made from it is strictly forbidden in Islam.
The arrested teenager, who is from the local area, has been freed on police bail pending further inquiries.
Sergeant Jim Collen, of Sussex Police, said: "This was a very unpleasant incident which has naturally caused real anguish and anxiety amongst worshippers at the mosque.
"Sussex Police take all reports of hate crime extremely seriously and this investigation will be no exception."

Islam is a war plan that has caused an unimaginable amount of “real anguish and anxiety”.
Poor kid, he needs an education. He should have thrown a complete pig.
Ohh The Hamanity!
“Poor kid, he needs an education. He should have thrown a complete pig.
Bull! They can have the ham but why share the bacon?
moslems always forget that when they get outside their sheltered environment of blood thirsty mullahs and assorted other nutcases they will have to face up to the fact that ham sandwiches are good ~ so good in fact their existence must have been decreed by Allah Himself eh!
A hate crime?
You mean a THOUGHT CRIME
What? They can’t take a joke?
He was just Hamming it up....
The cops should have just written the kid a porking ticket.
"If you eatin' SPAM, you ain't eatin' ham ..."
[Parody of quote from Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House]
I sow what you did there.
I had a bunch of other puns but I didn’t want to hog them all.
There is nothing that can be thrown at a Christian church that would would warrant arrest.
He just wanted to un-rind.
What a waste of ham. Should have thrown bacon grease or pig crap.
Great point. We let the Muslims in our country, too. They use us and they do not assimilate.
meh, throwing is to inefficient, he should have chopped it up and blasted it out of a spud gun.
If you get a chance - pick up a copy of “The Bin Ladens” by Steve Coll ...
In it, you will find that [when they were away from Saudi Arabia] they indulged in ALL KINDS of western hedonism - INCLUDING eating PORK !!!
Sow what? It’s a boar-ing story anyway.
Let me guess... If these same Muslims were to say burn the Queen in effigy, or the UK or US flag, a Bible etc. No charges would be filed.
Mo ham ed da bess at brupfust...
Ham is in the name...blessed is he...therefore ham is blessed. The kid was just trying to make friends by making an offering.
I think the kid should have thrown a can of gasoline and a highway flare.
Imagine, for the rest of his life people will whisper as he passes by, “That ‘s the boy who tossed pieces of ham!”

Palestinians throw rockets into Israel and they are freedom fighters. A teenager throws ham at a mosque and he is a terrorist.
The more the eurocrats ignore the 600lb guerilla in the room that is political islam the more the citizenry will get pissed off and the more they will lash out, eventually there will be an event that will start a backlash wave that will be very destructive because of this....
Epsecially as the welfare state collapses and the native leeches look for someone to blame for guzzling their bennies....
MARK MY WORDS
No, ham is pig butt; chitterlings are pork guts. ;-)
The Left throws condoms at the Pope.
Eating pork and products made from it is strictly forbidden in Islam....He threw it, assh*le. He didn’t serve it.
Instead of arresting the kid, maybe they should look into the mental stability of grown men and women having a mental meltdown over a piece of ham!
i actually have no problem with the arrest, but it should be for vandalism or destruction of private property. Hate Crime laws are redundant by their very nature.
Don’t be silly.
He can’t afford a whole pig.
