On March 22, 2001, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that "Sparks police said Wednesday the second teen suspect has been arrested in last week's baseball bat attack on two men outside a mosque, and local Muslim leaders said at an interfaith gathering they accept the police theory that it may not be a hate crime...Other Muslims said they think the motivation for the attack may have been the victims' ethnic backgrounds."
