A black woman in Chevy Chase, Maryland, had racial epithets spray-painted on her garage door shortly after moving into her new home, according to police.
On Monday morning, a neighbor noticed the vandalism on the woman’s garage door. It read: “N—— Go Home.”
The victim and the neighbor removed the racist graffiti together, Montgomery County Police said.
Investigators believe the incident occurred sometime between 2 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday.
Captain Paul Starks told WTOP that the woman had moved into her new home “a little over a week ago.”
The Daily Mail noted that Chevy Chase is one of the most affluent towns in the United States, with a median income of $250,000.
