Cancer victim to car vandal: 'I will survive your [expletive] too'

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A cancer survivor is fighting back after a series of vandalisms hit her southeast Portland neighborhood.

Within the past two weeks, someone has been slashing the tops of convertibles parked on side streets in the Hawthorne area.

Christy, who asked to remain anonymous, says she came out to find a big patch cut out of her car last Wednesday.

Like most challenges in her life, Christy fought back. She posted a note on her car with this message:

"Dear person who cut my car: this year I survived cancer. And I will survive your bull**** too."

"To come out and see something like this — there is really no excuse, no matter what you think is so wrong with your life, to have to go out and cause hardship for other people," Christy said.

It turns out, Christy is just one of many others who was targeted.

Phones were ringing off the hook at Beaverton Auto Upholstery where the owner says they've recently received at least 12 calls, all coming from the east side of town.

Portland police say they don't have any suspect information or motive behind the vandalism.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees.
