VERO BEACH, FL — Someone at 55-and-older community in South Florida has gone to shocking lengths to send the message that kids are not allowed, or welcomed.
Bhaskar Barot claims someone spray painted graffiti both of his cars at his Vero Beach home with the message "No kids."
An upset Barot showed off the damage to his vehicles to WPBF-TV. He says the harassment is probably the result of someone who's upset that he babysits his 4-year-old granddaughter twice a week at his home in the Woodfield development.
Barot admits that his granddaughter does stay the night ocassionally, but not enough to violate the community restrictions.
"I moved here after my heart transplant to be at peace … my grand-baby is my life."
Barot says someone has also been sending pictures of Barot with his granddaughter to the homeowner's association to report him for having children in his home.
The neighborhood HOA does allow children to visit and only forbids kids under the age of 18 from living at a home for more than 30 days in a year.
Police are investigating the incident. Barot says while he does feel like moving now, he's going to stand his ground and hopes police catch the person responsible.
