THE BRONX - A Bronx family awakened this morning to find words and images of hate spray-painted across its Edgewater Park home.

Gloria Cannon, who has lived in The Bronx for the past 50 years, says she has no enemies. She was shocked to find swastikas, racial slurs and the words "get out" sprayed all over her home.

However, Cannon's brother-in-law says the incident didn't come without warning. He claims people have been trying to run them out of town for years because his two grandsons are Hispanic.

The NYPD's hate crime unit is investigating the incident.
