Roberts is a Democrat running for State Representative in the 186th District. In addition to the paint, Roberts also said the vandal left a threatening message with a racial slur.

“There was also a note on the outside,” said Roberts. “It said, ‘We out for blood n****. This really has just truly gone too far.”

Roberts says he’s reported two other vandalism incidents to police but nothing as serious as Tuesday’s.

“It’s not just vandalism,” said Roberts. “It’s risen to a higher level of a threat.”
