NH family says vandal targeted them with racist graffiti in apartment laundry room
NASHUA — A family living in a Nashua apartment complex say they are the target of racist graffiti left in the laundry room.
For the past six years, Carol Orina and her family have been living at the Pine Hill Gardens apartment complex in Nashua and she says they have never been a target before.
Orina said her family had returned home Tuesday night and decided to do laundry. When her 14-year-old son started the laundry there was no graffiti in the shared laundry room, but when he returned, there were three very large, profanity-filled instances of graffiti on the back of the door, a bulletin board and an electrical box containing expletives and derogatory words.
According to Orina, they are the only black family in the building.
The family reported the incident to Nashua police, who said that they are currently investigating.
They also reported the incident to the Stabile Property Management company that owns the building but have not yet received a response.
Orina said the graffiti in the laundry room had been cleaned off sometime on Wednesday.
