Racial slurs found on apartment door

Posted

Cleveland Police are investigating a reported vandalism which the victims said included racial slurs written on an apartment door.

Officer Matt Formont responded to 3005 Henderson Ave. in a case he classified as "harassment." He said that he was met at the door Monday evening just before midnight by Sharee M. Jenkins, who said that someone had written "threatening messages on her doors."

On one of the screen doors the words "N-----s get out', while on the front door was "N-----s you will die." The words were all written out on the doors.

Jenkins said that she and her husband, Marcus Jarrett, "keep to" themselves and "have not upset anyone" to their knowledge. She added that three small children reside at the apartment.

She said the words were not on the doors when Jarrett went to work, and that she was notified of the threats by a neighbor at 9:45 p.m. Monday.

Police placed heavy extra patrol on the site of the incident, estimated at $100 in damage, and investigation into the incident is continuing.
