BROOKLYN -

Police have arrested a 37-year-old man for allegedly vandalizing two mosques in Sunset Park.

The incidents happened on Nov. 11.

Authorities say video shows Moy Hu smashing fixtures with a hammer outside the Fatih Mosque. Police say Hu also damaged another nearby mosque 30 minutes earlier.

Religious leaders came together earlier this week to call for action after what they called a hate crime.

Officials say Hu has been charged with two counts of criminal mischief.
