Retired Army veteran tired of being the target of mischief and harassment

"I never had a problem. I love all my neighbors," said Brenda Liveoak, a retired Army veteran, who doesn't have a clue who would want to target her or her home of nearly 30 years. 

Liveoak lives on College Avenue, right on the border of Allen Park and Lincoln Park.

At first, the mischief started with someone leaving construction barrels and posts on Liveoak's lawn, but recently the items have been left blocking her front door. 

It's happened 22 times in the last year. And, during the winter, on at least a half dozen other occasions, someone has pelted Liveoak's home with a number of snowballs packed so hard they sounded more like chunks of ice when they hit the house.

On Tuesday, Liveoak and Allen Park Police shared surveillance pictures and video of the suspect, hoping someone will be able to identify the person responsible. 

Liveoak wonders why anyone would make her their target. She said, "I can't fathom why."

Anyone with information is urged to call Allen Park Police.
