Surveillance video captured someone throwing a Bible and rocks through a Colorado mosque's glass doors on Sunday morning.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations urged authorities to classify the incident at the Islamic Center of Fort Collins as a hate crime since a Bible was involved, CNN reports. So far, authorities have not done so. 

By CAIR's count, U.S. mosques have been targeted for vandalism, threats or arson 33 times since the start of the year.

Here's another look at the damage.

Fort Collins Police Chief John Hutto called the incident "unacceptable."

Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) also condemned the incident.

The mosque launched a GoFundMe page on Sunday. It has already raised nearly $18,000 as of about 7 a.m. Eastern time Monday.

Locals held a rally at the center to show solidarity on Sunday.
