Kids accused of throwing rocks, racial slurs in Norwood


Hunter Robinson lives along Myrtle Avenue in Norwood and told FOX19 Now he’s had some issues with some young pre-teens.

He said the children range between 8 and 12-years-old and are throwing rocks at cars and homes.

“Like our next door neighbor he comes out and there are footprints on his car,” he said.

Robinson does confront the young children but he said all they do is throw racial slurs.

“They just say what do you want and call us White [expletive]“ said Robinson.

In December, a gay slur was written on his car in the snow.

He believes the people behind it are the young boys in the neighborhood.

He has been unable to locate the parents of the children and said the rock throwing and name calling has been going on for months.

On Tuesday, Norwood Police confirmed that officials had received an anonymous call about juveniles throwing rocks at cars. However, they have not received any complaints from individuals alleging damage to their vehicles. 

Robinson is afraid of what the racial and gay slurs could lead to.

“They could say it to some white supremacist  and next thing you know they are shot," said Robinson.

He said he doesn’t respond back to them even after they dented his car throwing a basketball at it.

He hopes by speaking out, the parents of the children will see the story and talk to them about their behavior.
