Her property has been vandalized numerous times. Rocks were being thrown and breaking her windows, more than once a month in the last seven months. Most recently was just yesterday (June 27, 2016)!
She has false cameras set up around the building and signs to deter such actions but to no avail. She has spoken to security camera companies but they were priced around $3000 to $4000 and as a small business, that is a very costly investment. She has reached out to her insurance company after the first few incidents but they have threatened to drop her due to the frequency of her claims.
There have been no other reports or incidences regarding vandalism in the area and the Eugene Police do not have a solution except to take a report and try to increase police presence. During our discussion, we both feel this could be a hate crime towards her and her establishment. She is in fear for her business, livelihood and potentially her physical being because she does not know who is doing this or why they are doing it, as these are unprovoked attacks.
The money raised will be used for installing a new security system with cameras and WiFi and to repair the damages to her property.
Phung has been a community member for many years and her business has never experienced anything like this. As many of you know, she lost her husband two years ago and running this business without him has been stressful and at times very challenging.
We are hopeful that we as a community can show our appreciation and support for her through these challenging times.
