Beech Grove—A Beech Grove couple is thankful their daughter is too young to understand that they became victims of a hate crime. Outside the couple's Willow Glen Apartment, someone wrote a racial slur. They also banged on their door to make sure they had gotten their attention. At the time, the woman was home alone with her 18 month-old daughter.
"My boyfriend is black my kid is obviously mixed," said Shantel Garner.
"You're embarrassed that it happens in your own community because I'm a part of that community so I'm embarrassed to be a part of that." said Aaron Brooks.
The couple has filed a report with police. They say, while maintenance at their apartment complex painted over the graffiti, their initial calls and emails were not answered. They are now looking for a new place to live after living in their current apartment for just two months.
