Chapin, 34, is charged with harassment and intimidation.


(KATU.COM) WEST LINN, Ore. – A West Linn woman was jailed for allegedly leaving several Post-it notes on her African American neighbor’s door, calling her a racial slur.

Eva Chapin, 34, was arrested Tuesday on two counts of intimidation and harassment.

KATU’s Emily Sinovic interviewed the victim, who provided photocopies of four of the Post-it notes Chapin allegedly left at her door over a parking dispute. Chapin allegedly calls her neighbor the N-word and referred to her as an “ape.”

“I’m not racist,” Chapin allegedly writes, “but I can see how someone can become [sic] hating [expletive]. You did this. There were no [expletive] in W.L. until u came.”

“I’ve been here 22 years and no [expletive] and now you. U made me hate [expletive] now,” another note said.
The victim did not want her name published to protect her family’s privacy. She has a teenage daughter at home.

“My little daughter came from school to see this note,” she said. “I feel like I’m not safe here.”

The victim has filed for a restraining order against Chapin.
