GEORGE TOWN: A journalist here suspects she is in danger after her house gate and car were splashed with red paint – but has no idea why she was targeted.

Malaysiakini assistant news editor Susan Loone discovered the vandalism on Friday (Jan 17) morning.

"I feel angry because I don't know what the person wants. At least leave a note," she said.

Loone said this could be over something she had written about.

"I write about many different issues every day and I have absolutely no idea what this paint splashing is about," she added.

In her police report, Loone described how her mother discovered the paint splashes at 8am on Friday when she went to the porch to water the plants in the house.

Loone also told the police that last Tuesday (Jan 7), a stranger on a high-powered motorcycle rode up to her house near Jalan Masjid Negeri, rang her doorbell twice and sped off.

Police are now investigating the case.
