MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (WTXF) - A South Jersey woman says just a few weeks after moving into her apartment in Burlington County, someone left her a nasty message, slashed her tire, called her a terrorist and told her she's not welcome.
And, the woman said the harassment doesn't stop there.
"No one should have to go through this and I just moved here. It's ridiculous," said Kenya Robinson.
Robinson has been spending the last week watching her back in her new Mount Holly neighborhood after making a disturbing find that targeted her race and her Muslim faith. It began with a drive to the store.
"When I hopped out, that's when I noticed that my tire was flat. So, I just, something just said look at the letter. It said go home 'racist slur' terrorist. You're not wanted here B. USA USA USA," Robinson described the note. "I was just thinking like, 'I'm home! I'm from New Jersey. Where do you want me to go? I can't go no farther."
She's been shaken since the April 11th discovery.
"I was just shocked. Like, I didn't know what to say, what to think, how to feel. I didn't know there were still people like this in the world," Robinson said.
But, it got worse.
She recorded audio of someone banging on a side door in the middle of the night, freaking her out.
"It was like you want me gone that bad that you going to wake me up in my sleep? I'm not worried about me actually, my kids were terrified. No one should have to live in fear," Robinson explained.
Already feeling like a stranger since moving from Salem County late last month, she hates the feeling of being stalked.
"They watching me, I'm watching them. That's all I can do now," Robinson stated.
In the meantime, she's thankful the police are keeping an eye on things.
"They patrol my house all night now. They knock on the door to make sure I'm safe, make sure we're fine," Robinson said.
Police call this a bias incident and say the investigation continues.
