SAN ANTONIO -- It was America's birthday but for one local family July Fourth was no party. It was a nightmare for a local Muslim family who say someone spray-painted the word "terrorist" on their home Wednesday morning...and it didn't stop there.
The family says on Wednesday night someone rang their doorbell and started banging on the front door.
They told police they heard fireworks being thrown at their door.
San Antonio police are investigating this as criminal mischief, but the family, who is of Pakistani heritage, wants more done. They are asking the FBI to get involved.
The San Antonio Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to get to the bottom of this possible hate crime. On Thursday, the same civil liberties group called for an investigation into a suspicious fire at a Missouri Mosque.
The family moved to the United States in 1978 and they have lived in the home near NW Military and Hunters Green for the past 18 years. They say their home was targeted twice in a short period of time. In November their home was burglarized.
Aside form the two recent incidents, the family says they have not had any problems. They say they don't know who would commit such a hateful act.
