Gay California Couple’s Home Ransacked, Covered In Bleach And Homophobic Slurs

The LAPD is treating the vandalism as a hate crime.

A Los Angeles-area home was broken into on Tuesday night and destroyed with paint, bleach and anti-gay graffiti.

Police are reporting that the walls of the Van Nuys home were kicked in and water pipes were destroyed, in addition to anti-gay slurs having been spray-painted on the walls and gallons of bleach and paint spilled all over the floor.

The owners, who were too upset to talk to reporters, were not home during the burglary, but neighbors told ABC that the victims only lived there for about a year and had just finished a remodel of the entire house.

The LAPD reported that some items were also stolen from the home, and the incident is being treated as a hate crime.
