A longtime Minneapolis resident's home has been vandalized six times in the past seven months, and now people are raising money to help support her.
Frances Mosley, 89, has lived in the same house near Lake Nokomis for more than 50 years, a GoFundMe page organized by her son says.
Over the past several months, the Mosleys believe the same person has come to her house "breaking several windows," the GoFundMe Page says, adding that "they’re targeting Mrs. Mosley and doing this purposefully under some kind of agenda."
"We were the first and still one of the only Black families in the neighborhood to this day," the page says, noting each incident has been reported to police, who told them it's either a vendetta, somebody who’s had a negative interaction with the family or racial terrorism.
“I don’t really feel secure here no,” Mosley told FOX 9.
The first incident happened the night of March 25, a YouTube page says. In total, the six incidents have cost the family more than $2,000, the page says, noting some windows are covered in plywood still because finding glass to replace some of the windows has been difficult.
"I have installed several cameras, lights, and shatter alarms since the vandalism started, but the vandal keeps coming back," Mosely's son writes on the page. "The repeat nature of this crime has really increased the financial burden on our family."
That's why they're seeking financial help via GoFundMe. The page has a goal of $2,000, and in just two days it has raised $6,450 from 186 people.
MPD told FOX 9 they're investigating these incidents, noting they're typically forwarded to patrol officers who are asked to keep an eye out for suspicious activity in the area.
