New York, Aug.27 (ANI): A drunk barged into a Queens mosque last night and urinated on prayer rugs, cops and witnesses said.

According to the New York Post, evening prayers were disrupted at the Iman Mosque on Steinway Street in Astoria when the unhinged man "came in with a beer bottle in his hands, clearly very intoxicated.

The paper quoted Mustapha Sadouki, who was attending services, as saying: "He fumbled over to our rugs where people were praying" and then committed the despicable desecration."

The man, identified as Omar Rivera, had allegedly been drinking for five days, a police source said.

Cops have charged him with criminal trespass.He stuck up his middle finger and cursed at everyone. No one can pray now because the rugs are completely soiled. It was disgusting," said Sadouki, 43. (ANI)
