GROVE CITY, Ohio -- A Grove City couple says they were the target of a hate crime overnight after a homophobic slur was spray-painted on their home.
David Robins and his partner, Michael, have lived at their home on Castleton Street in Grove City for nine years.
Wednesday morning, Robins said, they awoke to find someone had spray-painted homophobic slurs on their garage door, home and fence.
"It's extremely disappointing. Nine years we've lived here and not a problem. Now, all of a sudden this happens. It makes me kind of wonder," he said. "I kind of feel like it needs to stay up to make a statement, but at the same time, I don't want to disrupt the neighbors, the perception of the neighborhood, but I also feel like I don't want to cover it up, either."
Robins is calling it a hate crime, and Grove City officers are investigating.
