Mike Cattani woke up Friday to find his car tagged with graffiti.

"Look around at the other vehicles, every other vehicle just about had their tires slashed, spray painted on the SUV, spray painted on every vehicle," Cattani said.

With no way to get to work, he woke up his brother and the rest of his family; that's when they noticed the fence.

"The expletive for the f-word and then after that, there was the mentioning of the KKK," said Joe Cattani.

The family suspects whoever did this specifically targeted them, but they don't know why.

"I just want somebody to come forward so justice can appropriately be served," said Joe Cattani.

The obscene writings on the fence were washed off over the weekend. The family had to have all five cars towed to get them repaired.

"We're 30 minutes out the way, I work over at Witchduck. I'm up before the bus even runs and we don't have a bus out here," said Mike Cattani. "So when you ain't got a vehicle out here, you're pretty much at the liberty of the taxi."

Now they're just waiting to get their cars back and hope whoever did this gets caught.

"I'd say straighten up. It's not cool taking people's honest livings," said Mike Cattani.

"Just do the right thing. I know it's said a lot, but karma does come back and it will come back hard," said Joe Cattani.
