Natick police investigating possible hate crime

Natick police are investigating a series of threatening letters left on a resident’s doorstep this weekend.

A Maple Street resident told police he received two racially charged letters. The first was a handwritten note found around 10 a.m. Thursday and a second typed letter was found around 7 p.m. Friday. The handwritten letter contained profanity and racial slurs.

The second letter stated, “We have reclaimed our country back by selecting Trump …”

It warned the resident not to bring people of color into the neighborhood.

“This kind of behavior is not indicative of the values in the town of Natick and will not be tolerated in our community,” Police Chief James Hicks said in a news release. “The department is taking this case very seriously and we will investigate to our fullest capabilities to ensure the safety and security of our residents.”

There have been no other reports of similar letters.

Anyone with information regarding either incident is asked to contact the Natick Police Department at508-647-9500.
