Updated June 6, 9:30 p.m.: A statement issued by the FBI's Atlanta field office says:

"Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Mark F. Giuliano, along with Gary D. George, Director of Alpharetta Public Safety, requests the public’s assistance in identifying the individual responsible for defacing the Islamic Center of North Fulton located in Alpharetta.

On Monday, May 27, at approximately 12:15 a.m., officers of the Alpharetta Police Department responded to the Islamic Center of North Fulton (ICNF), 1265 Rucker Road, Alpharetta, Georgia.

Upon arrival, police officers discovered the ICNF sign on Rucker Road had been painted with 'London Justice' and 'Where Is Justice.'

Witnesses described a white male, approximately 50 - 60 years old, with a paint bucket and paint brush at the scene.

A Georgia Bureau of Investigation provided composite sketch of the suspect, based on those witness descriptions, is being made available at this time to assist in the identification of this individual.

The FBI and Alpharetta police are jointly investigating this incident.

If you have any information, please contact the FBI at (404) 679-9000 or Alpharetta police at (678) 297-6375."

Original story: Alpharetta Police are investigating an incident of vandalism at the Islamic Center of North Fulton.

Police officers responded to a call Monday from a witness saying he'd seen an “elderly Caucasian male wearing a rag on his head and short pants” painting graffiti on the center's entrance sign, according to the incident report.

The words painted on the sign read “London Justice” and “Where Is Justice.”

According to the police report, the responding officers searched the area for the suspected vandal but were unable to find him.

The incident report says the witness reported that he approached the man and asked him what he was doing; the man then walked away. The witness said the suspected vandal “appeared to have an English accent,” according to the report.
