Vandals tag Woodburn senior community: 'Tired of you old people'

Posted: Updated:
WOODBURN, OR (KPTV) -

Grandparents became targets of vandalism when someone spray-painted offensive messages on their homes.

The damage is bad, but the messages may be worse. The vandals used yellow spray paint to write things like "damn fools" and "I tired of you old people."

On Monday morning, Woodburn police say 14 homes were hit.

But the vandals didn't stop there.

Police say they also used some sort of cutting tool to sever cables from cable boxes in the senior living community.

Some believe it's the work of teens or pranksters.

"All I can say is what goes around comes around. If you get to be old, look for paint on your house and cut wires because it could very well come to that," Greg, who lives in the community and asked that we only use his first name, said.

Police say so far this does not look to be gang related.

But they are asking for the public's help.

If you know who may behind this, contact Woodburn police.
