An unidentified Black woman who had just moved in to her new Maryland suburban home in an exclusive area, was awakened Monday morning to find the words, “N-word, Go Home” spray painted in red on her garage doors, according to WTOP.
The town of Chevy Chase, which is northwest of the nation’s capital, is an affluent town of mostly Victorian homes and located in Montgomery County, Maryland. Its residents are predominantly prominent attorneys and D.C. politicos with a median household income of about $250,000. The racial makeup of the area has a population of about 92 percent Caucasian and 1 percent African American.
According to Montgomery County police, the woman had only occupied her home for a little more than a week when the hate crime took place.
Authorities contend that there have been no other racially bias acts of vandalism reported to them in recent years.
Either way, the vandals seemed to have strategically chosen the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday as the day to deface the home, according to investigators.
Anyone with information can call the Montgomery County Police department at 301-279-8000.
