The FBI is investigating a horrific crime against an Indian American family in El Paso County, Colorado, reports KKTV.

The couple was awoken by neighbors who saw feces smeared on the home and numerous hate messages and slurs scrawled on the garage.

“About 10 percent of the messages were racial slur on us, ‘You brown or Indian shouldn’t be here,’ something like that. So it was frightening,” said the homeowner who was only identified as Saravanan.

The family says it has no idea why someone would do this to them. It’s suspected the vandalism was carried out by a large group of people.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department is calling the incident a hate crime.

“No physical damage; that mental damage is there. It will be there … at least for a while,” said Saravanan.
