HIGH POINT, N.C. -- When Charity Jackson showed up to work Tuesday morning, she thought someone had broken into her coffee shop on Washington Street.

"I looked around the store to see if I had anything missing," Jackson said, who owns Cre8tive Niche coffee shop.

Nothing was gone except her peace of mind.

Vandals shot BB guns and paintballs at her business and the barber shop next door.

Jackson’s brand new glass door was a target. She’ll now have to replace it.

"It's going to cost us anywhere between $400 to $500.”

It's an extra expense which comes at a time when the businesses along Washington Street are working hard to restore the once historic area.

"We're looking for positive things going forward and things like this, it sets us back," said Andretti Barnes, who works at the barber shop next door that was also hit by vandals.

Barnes thinks the people responsible were probably kids, but even so he says the damage left behind is still serious.

"When they're out here having fun, it's going to cost someone else to clean up their mess," Barnes said.

"We just ask that people support by helping us keep the place clean and not vandalize because it's costing us money," Jackson said.

High Point police are investigating but haven’t made any arrests.
