Was it a hate crime? That's what a Hilo business owner is trying to find out.

Boutique owner, Ipyana Mattos says someone vandalized the front door of her Keawe Street shop.

Mattos sent KITV surveillance video of a man allegedly writing "No Blacks" on Haleigh Rose Boutique on December 31st.

The owner says this isn't the first time-- the same thing happened this past Monday and Tuesday and she wants to find out who's responsible.

"It's just so scary, because this is the second time they do this. I don't know what they are going to do the third time," Matttos said.

Mattos has worked at the Haleigh Rose Boutique for the past decade.

She says she has already contacted Big Island Police.
