Police in Corbin are looking for vandals who wrote racial slurs on the side of an interracial couple's home.

Police say the hate message was left last week on the side of a home the couple was renting on First Street. Police say the couple was evicted shortly after the incident.

Local churches are assisting the couple by giving them money and paying for motel rooms for them to stay in.

Corbin police say the person or people responsible will face third degree criminal mischief charges. So far, there are no suspects.
