CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - D.J. McCulloch parked her red Mini Cooper near the back of Razzy’s Road House at the Sherwood Business Centre on Thursday.

“I was at an appointment with my son,” McCulloch said.

Soon after leaving the appointment she discovered the front of her car was vandalized. Engraved on the hood of her car was a homophobic slur.

McCulloch was shocked.

“It’s pretty foul language,” she said surveying the damage with Charlottetown police.

McCulloch couldn’t think of anyone who would want to send her this message. She said there are a few other cars like hers on the Island but not many, suggesting it could be a case of mistaken identity.

“I know it is not directed towards me.”

This is what makes McCulloch upset, now she has to somehow fix the damage.

She suspects the damage happened where the car was parked at the back of the Sherwood Business Centre between 10:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., she said.

Charlottetown police are investigating the incident. Anyone with information can contact police at 902-629-4172.
