An 89-year-old woman's home in south Minneapolis has been targeted by a vandal for the 9th time since March.
Someone broke out windows on the first floor of Frances Mosley's home just after 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 6, her son, Sean Mosley, told Fox 9 News.
Fox 9 News first reported this story in early November, after the sixth incident of vandalism at Mosley's home. The vandal broke windows behind Mosley's home on Thanksgiving morning and two more times since then.
"I don't really feel secure here," said Mosley, who lived in her home for over 50 years. Mosley is one of two Black families in the area.
Her son, Sean, installed security cameras, flood lights and an alarm. But the vandalism continues.
"I mean, it's just ridiculous. It's beyond belief," Sean told Fox 9. "You'd think, what kind of person, what kind of deviant mind would think about doing this on Thanksgiving morning."
Minneapolis Police Department spokesperson John Elder said the suspect wore dark clothing, a black ski mask and gloves. He placed tape over the tag on his tan or brown Ford Taurus.
Police say the vandalism is not a top priority because it is a misdemeanor property crime.
Sean believes the vandalism is the work of two people. "It's very well planned, well thought out. They're casing the place. They're making sure that it's okay to strike."
Sean said he plans to put up fences around the home. "We're going to do whatever it takes to get this person stopped," he said.
A GofundMe account has raised over $10,000 to repair the damage caused by the vandals.
Someone vandalized Nipsey Hussle's Marathon clothing store in a strip mall the rapper previously owned in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
A Twitter user uploaded video of the destruction with a caption threatening the lives of whoever did the damage:
"A niggh bet not find out who did this shit... bitch ass nigghs something awful gone happen to Yu!! Long Live The Great @NipseyHussle shit fucced up cuz, love u bro [sic]."
The same user uploaded a second video that shows a group of volunteers sweeping up the shattered glass outside the store.
Vandals also hit the T-Mobile store next-door to Marathon Clothing, and other stores were hit as well.
Nipsey, real name Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed near the doorway to his store in 2019. He used his rap revenue to open the shop in his childhood neighborhood of Crenshaw in 2017.
There is still no word on why the vandals hit the most famous strip mall in South Central.
2 Chainz's business partner Mychel "Snoop" Dillard called out white business owners for vandalizing Crave, the only Black-owned restaurant on Euclid Avenue in Atlanta's Little 5 Points.
In a post on Instagram.com, Dillard posted photos of the vandalism and issued a warning to her neighbors on Atlanta's East Side:
"Being a business owner during these times is super challenging. Every time I lay down and get up it’s SOMETHING but I can’t complain cause Im super blessed ??

Just don’t let me find out Who You Are and if you think some broken glass gone stop me YOU GOT ME FUCKED UP!!!! We still open today ain't nobody tripping off no little glass......"
Dillard and rapper 2 Chainz own several establishments in Atlanta.
Criminals are having a field day in Democrat-controlled New York City where the no cash bail reform law went into effect on January 1.
The no cash bail reform law, enacted by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, ends cash bail for "non-violent" crimes.
Petty crimes are "through the roof," according to New Yorkers on social media. One social media user posted a video showing a New York resident destroying makeup counters at Bloomingdales in New York City.
Well-heeled shoppers fled as the man turned over display tables and smashed glass counters.
If the man is arrested, he will be back on the streets within hours, thanks to the no bail reform law.
