TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Four residents of a high-rise apartment building primarily occupied by University of Arizona students have been evicted for allegedly hurling objects onto the Islamic Center of Tucson.

City Councilman Steve Kozachik told the Arizona Daily Star (https://bit.ly/1FgPW9D) that the evictions are about protecting people, not about cultural sensitivity.

Kozachik says video from the center and mosque shows objects being thrown off a balcony that the four male residents share.

They received eviction notices Thursday and have until Monday to vacate.

Islamic Center officials say people from three nearby apartment complexes have pelted the property with beer and liquor bottles and other objects for more than a year.

An attorney for the building owners says residents will be evicted if it can be proven they threw objects.
