WINSTON-SALEM, N.C -- Sabrina Mixon-Penn found her red truck covered in white paint when she stepped into her driveway on Woodlore Trail Wednesday morning.

"It was like a cream-colored white paint coming all the way down here," Mixon-Penn said pointing to her windshield.

The paint covered part of her windshield, roof, and the back of her truck.

She says a can of paint was left sitting behind a tire.

"They just left it," said Mixon-Penn.

She was able to wash it off, but she wasn't so lucky when it happened the first time in April.

Her driveway is still covered in gray paint after someone poured it on another one of her cars.

In January, someone keyed her car and her husband's truck.

"Where am I supposed to park my car if my car isn't safe in my own driveway?” she asked. “What do I do?"

Mixon-Penn says the vandalism hasn't happened to any of her other neighbors.

"I don't know what to think,” she said. “It's happening in my neighborhood. It's only happening to me."

She's reported all three incidents to Winston-Salem police but still doesn't know who's behind it.

"What's going to keep them one day from just walking in my house?” Mixon-Penn asked. “So, I'm a little afraid."

Mixon-Penn says she felt that fear when she first moved in about 16 years ago. Flyers from the Ku Klux Klan were left on her door.

"They had the Ku Klux Klan people in their hoods and a lot of writing about the Ku Klux Klan," she said.

Mixon-Penn says she also gets cards and letters in the mail about selling her home although it’s not on the market.

“Maybe they're just trying to run us out the neighborhood,” she said. “Why? I don't know. I don't bother anybody.”

Winston-Salem police are investigating but do not have any leads.

Police say they have no knowledge of the vandalism happening to anyone else in the area.

Tracey Hines with Cedar Management Group which runs Woodland Hills Homeowner's Association sent this statement to FOX8 about the vandalism:

"We certainly sympathize with the affected homeowner for having experienced this; however, this is a criminal matter the association has no knowledge of and also no authority control. We encourage the homeowner to engage the services of the local authorities."
