"It's like, you gotta be kidding me. I mean it was everything that was white.  So, my white van, their white car, they had a green one that wasn't touched, a white car over there, another white van over there," said Donna D'Amato.

D'Amato woke up Saturday morning to find vulgar comments about her two daughters. Comments like, "I want her."

"Really was just I think, kids trying to come up with every stupid thing that they could think to say, because there was no pattern to it. It didn't make sense," said D'Amato.

One couple who lives on Warren Ave. had obscene words and a swastika on their front door.

Middleboro police think it happened sometime between midnight and 3 a.m. Saturday.

By noon, neighbors had helped each other clean off all the graffiti.

Ten cars and 3 homes were tagged; some with swastikas and racial slurs.

Kate Dupre lives in the neighborhood. She said, "Well, we have people from different nationalities here and I think it's something that we're all very concerned about and we don't want that in our neighborhood."

One home had surveillance video, but police say it didn't show anyone. They don't believe it's racially motivated, but may have been done by someone familiar with the neighborhood.
