On October 9, a Muslim family, resident of Streamwood contacted the police about an offensive, anti-Muslim flier, they found on their car outside their home. The flier begins with “To the Muslims at (resident’s address) Streamwood IL, We want you out, we will continue to mock you and your family …” It included an apparent screen shot of an ISIS propaganda video telling the family they are not welcome in this country. The family stated that a similar flier was found in their mailbox.
Deputy Police Chief Ed Valente said the department has launched an investigation, but police so far have no leads on who may be responsible.
“We take all matters similar to this very seriously,” he said.
