A YENDA couple who had their home destroyed in the floods has been dealt another crushing blow after they were targeted by vandals last week.
Fiona and Gordon Brown had their car keyed and the meter box ripped from the wall of their West Avenue house in what is just the latest in a long list of attacks over recent months.
Mrs Brown said the senseless attacks were extremely upsetting.
“We just want to be left alone. We’ve been through enough,” she said.
“It makes you feel sick. It’s just one more thing in what’s been a pretty crappy 18 months. It’s frustrating because it’s something that doesn’t need to happen.
“Even while our house was being rebuilt lowlifes deliberately cut the plastic that covered the walls to keep the elements out.”
The Browns’ house was extensively damaged when flood waters inundated in March last year and it had to be completely gutted.
“The vandalism has been frustrating. It wasn’t major damage before,” Mrs Brown said. “It just kept happening from April this year through to July, and now this.
“They keyed my husband’s car right around both sides and across the back. Then someone has managed to rip the meter box off the wall and broke the panelling.”
Griffith Police Inspector Tony Reneker said while regular patrols were carried out at Yenda, public assistance was needed.
“Police are tasked to patrol on a daily basis but we do urge people who live out there to ring police if they see anything suspicious,” Inspector Reneker said.
“We need specific details. So if you see anything out of the ordinary we want to know about it.”
