Police say two Fort Smith men have been arrested for vandalizing mosques in the western Arkansas city.

Police on Tuesday said 19-year-old Craig Wigginton and 20-year-old Abraham Davis are being held on felony charges of first-degree criminal mischief and that more arrests are possible.

Sgt. Daniel Grubbs has said profanities, swastikas and phrases such as "Go Home" and "Go Back to Your Country" were painted on the Masjid Al Salam Mosque and the Fort Smith Islamic Center in October.

Jail records show the suspects are being held on $15,000 bond. No attorney is listed for either.
