Suwanee, March 2, 2021 – An Asian couple's blue Nissan Altima was spray painted with Asian racial slur last Friday evening, according to Suwanee Police Department.
The couple was watching a movie at Park Tavern on Lawrenceville Suwanee Road. They discovered the ethnic slur on their car at the parking lot.
The Asian couple was shaken from the incident and upset with the perpetrator. “I don’t have problems with nobody, my husband doesn’t have problems with nobody,” Sonethida Siharath said. “We work. We take taxes. We take care of our kids.”
“I’ve been here in Atlanta for 20 plus years, a schoolteacher, and I’ve never someone call me that name before,” Siharath said. “So, it’s kind of brand new, shocking.”
A bypass witness told police they say the suspects were wearing all black, including black masks, and drove off in a white sedan.
Anyone who has information to the case is to contact Detective Dawn Zaenglein with the Suwanee Police Department at 770-904-7642.
