COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) – A letterĀ filled with expletives and disturbing sexual comments is being described as vulgar, scary, and gross.

The letter, apparently mailed to the home of a South Asian Coquitlam couple — and even addressed to one of them, tells them to go “back to their own country.”

The typed up, one page note in all caps is addressed to S.B. That’s the woman’s initials, according to the couple’s adult child, who shared a picture of the letter on the social media site Reddit.

“DARKY IN OUR WHITE MAN’S LAND GET THE F*** OUT OF MY COUNTRY,” is the first line of the letter, which goes on to make racist and sexual comments before saying, “LOTS OF YOU DARKIES HAVE TOO LONG IN MY COUNTRY. GET THE F**** OUT, OR TRUMP WILL SEND HIS GOONS TO DEVOUR YOU.”

The couple’s child says the anonymous letter, filled with grammatical errors, had a postal code “from Richmon/YVR.” Due to the fact theĀ letter isn’t directed as South Asians specifically, they wonder if the writer could be someone scouring for addresses of “non-white names.”

Coquitlam RCMP is investigating, but releasing few details of the case.

We take these crimes very seriously and are actively pursuing avenues of investigation,C st. Jenifer Barker said.

RCMP has not received reports of any other incidents, but anyone with information on this investigation can contact police at 604-945-1550 using reference file number 2019-24784.

Many comments on the Reddit post are expressing shock at the letter and hope that the person who wrote and sent it will get caught.

“This scares the s*** out of me. No one should ever have to get a letter like that,” wrote one person.

“Wow. I am just shocked this is happening,” wrote another Reddit user.

NEWS 1130 has reached out to the couple’s child.
