CAHOKIA, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Some Metro-East residents reported waking up Saturday morning to find racist, hateful messages written on their cars.
Four vehicles in a Cahokia, Ill. neighborhood were covered in obscenities, racial slurs and even references to the KKK.
Victims said police told them their vehicles were vandalized at random, but some residents do not believe that was the case.
"It's awful because we're here to get along," said resident Sybilfelita Cox. "And to act like a coward in the middle of the night coming and doing it to the cars and stuff. People work hard for what they have. It's just a disgrace, and it looks bad upon our city."
Police are investigating, but have not released further information on the case.
