Vandals draw racial slurs, swastika on Grain Valley vehicles

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. - At first Armon Daniels, 17, thought his friends pulled a prank on him Monday night. But then he noticed racial slurs and obscene images scrawled on his car’s rear and passenger windows.

“[There’s] no one I know who do something like this,” Daniels said.

The incident has upset his family.

“It actually made me very mad that someone would write that on my brother's car,” Daniels’ brother Jamore Golden said.

According to Grain Valley Police, Daniels’ car was one of two vandals targeted on the 700 block of Southwest Graystone. A third was tagged with obscene images on the 400 block of Southwest Oakwood.

“They must have known all of us cause they're a couple of girls who live down the street and they got their car wrote on but it didn't say anything like this,” Daniels told 41 Action News.

Grain Valley Police said Friday that they’ve hit a roadblock in their investigation.

“Nobody saw it occur and basically we have no leads on who it was,” Captain Jeff Palecek said.

Detectives canvassed the area but didn’t find any security camera video of the suspect or suspects.

Neighbors like Gerald Holland are appalled at the graffiti.

“I mean we should be past that, they’ve preached for years -- I thought we was getting better and all of a sudden we come up with it again and out in an area like this we haven't any of these problems,” Holland said.

Investigators urge anyone with information call Grain Valley Police at (816) 847-6250 or the KC Crimestoppers TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS(8477).
