The Allegan County Sheriff’s Department said the latest incident happened Wednesday at Watson Trailer Park in Otsego Township, about 35 miles south of Grand Rapids.

Police said the woman found a racial slur and the word “leave” spray painted on the outside of her home near the front door. They said the woman also found that someone let the air out of the tires of her vehicle about a week ago, but she didn’t report it to authorities at the time.

The department said the family moved into the home about four weeks ago, and the reports are being treated as a case of ethnic intimidation.
