The Islamic Center of Owensboro has been vandalized for the second time in less than a year.

Dr. Aseedu Kalik, treasurer for the center, tells local media that paint was thrown at the Islamic Center sign sometime over the weekend. The center filed a police report on Sunday.

Kalik says the Owensboro Police Department assured him they would be making extra patrols in the area.

The act of vandalism follows a January incident in which someone squirted ketchup on the center's sign. According to a sheriff's department report at the time, the damage was not permanent.

Kalik says he doesn't want people to get frustrated about the acts of a few individuals, because "that is not what the bigger community is about."
