CHEVY CHASE, Md. (WUSA9) -- Montgomery County police are investigating a hate crime after a neighbor noticed a racial slur spray painted on a garage.
It happened at a home in the 3300 block of Glenmoor Drive in Chevy Chase. Police believe the vandalism took place between 2 p.m. on Sunday and 7 a.m. on Monday.
The victim and neighbor removed the spray paint.
"Well, looked out window, and saw it very clearly on the garage door," said a neighbor.
On a Chevy Chase home, where a black family just moved in four days ago, a neighbor saw a variation of the N word, and then, "Go Home! "
Richard and Rheta who live across the street had not even met the single mom and her kids yet, when they had to tell them about the ugly, racist message on their house.
