When Osama E. El Hannouny was arrested by police in November for allegedly slashing the tires of 19 cars in two church parking lots, he reportedly told the police he did it "because he didn't like Christians."

Now the charges against him have been upgraded to 14 counts of felony hate crime, reported the Chicago Sun-Times on Jan. 9.

On Nov. 17, Palos Hills, Illinois police went to the First Baptist Church to investigate a report of cars being vandalized. They also investigated a report of cars being damaged at the church of Sts. Helen and Constantine.


"Palos Hills police reviewed security video which showed a man in a black hooded sweatshirt, later identified as El Hannouny, slashing tires," reported in Palos, Ill.  "Officers located El Hannouny, who they said matched the description of the man in both church parking lots."

"When he was arrested, he admitted to damaging the cars because he didn't like Christians," reported 

El Hannouny is out on bail with electronic monitoring. His next court date is Feb. 18.
