PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police are looking for a man who burglarized a mosque twice this month before fleeing both times on a bike.

Police say on July 12 and again on July 17, the man forced open a door at the Islamic Society of Greater Philadelphia Mosque after hours. He took an undisclosed amount of cash from what appear to be donation boxes attached to walls.

Police released video surveillance Thursday in hopes of finding the man. After the last burglary, he’s seen on the video stopping for a drink at a water cooler.

They’re urging the public to come forward if they have any information.
