Two individuals were gotten on video vandalizing City Council President Nury Martinez’s vehicle and driveway in Sun Valley.
The security footage, which was given to media by Martinez’ office, caught the two individuals at 1:59 a.m. Friday spray painting the words “End the sweeps” on Martinez’ driveway and pouring a white substance on her vehicle. “End the sweeps” alludes to the city’s act of constrained cleanups of destitute settlements, wherein unhoused occupants should bring down their tents and move their effects.
“My house was vandalized the previous evening outside the window of my 12-year-old daughter. I woke up to spray painting on my home and harm to my car as I was taking my daughter to school. A line was crossed the previous evening,” Martinez said in an articulation.
“A time of dangers, verbal provocation and now defacing won’t prevent me from doing what I need to do to run this city. I don’t live in dread, I don’t enact in dread. I will keep on managing my work. This is my local area. This does literally nothing to get individuals off the road and into lodging. Disgrace on these quitters.”
The Los Angeles Police Department said it is investigating the defacement and that no arrests have been made.
