AURORA, CO — The Aurora Police Department is investigating a possible racially motivated crime.

On November 22nd officers were called to a home on Briarwood near Saddlebrook Golf Course where they encountered “KKK” and the “N-word” spray painted on a woman’s home.

“It is very insensitive and disturbing,” Ari, the homeowner said in an interview Friday.

Ari does not want to share her last name.

“They taped a note to the door that said ‘watch your back — KKK,'” Ari said.

Currently Aurora Police do not have any suspects but have classified this as a top priority.

“Somebody knows something, we know somebody knows something, and we hope that someone will come forward,” Chief Nicholas Metz said.

That latest incident is just one of the latest in a string of hate filled crimes in Metro Denver in recent weeks.

“We are not going to tolerate this type of hate crime. People are emboldened with the political climate thinking they can say and do anything and the NAACP is not going to be tolerate this,” Omar Montgomery with the NAACP said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Aurora Police.
