NEW YORK -- Police continue to keep watch over a prominent Islamic cultural center that was firebombed as they investigate other attacks that also could be bias crimes.

In this frame grab taken from surveillance video released by the NYPD, a suspect, left, throws a lit object at a home in the Queens borough of New York on Sunday night, Jan. 1, 2012. This attack and three others in the neighborhood, including one on a globally prominent Islamic cultural center, are being investigated as possibly linked bias crimes.

A firebomb struck the center Sunday evening as about 80 people gathered for dinner. A private house that is used as a Hindu house of worship also was damaged in a suspected arson attack along with a corner store and another house.

No one was injured in the attacks and it is unclear if they are related.

Police have released a sketch of a suspect in the bombing of the Hindu worship site. They're offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
