Early Thursday morning Hared Jabril arrived to open up his market in St. Cloud and discovered his business had been vandalized.
In bright red graffiti the words “Go Home” had been painted on the windows of Hormud Meat and Grocery.
“I don’t know why,” Jabril said Friday morning.
While Jabril was born and raised in Nairobi, he immigrated to the U.S. in 2001 and says has been a proud citizen of this country and St. Cloud ever since.
