Owner Martin Lansky told News 5 he's not sure why Mission Boutique is being singled out.

"I don't know what it is that we sell here that makes us so special," Lansky said. "Victoria's Secret probably has racier items than we have. We have Halloween items, possibly she has some problem with that."

Sexist and derogatory words were plastered all over the Lakewood boutique, and this wasn't the first time the business has been targeted. Lansky says it may be because of the nature of the items sold, from costumes to clothing to lingerie.

Lansky said he really hopes Lakewood Police can identify the vandal before it gets worse. 

"She's definitely escalating. First it was magic marker, no she's graduated to spray cans, um next time hammers on the window? Who knows," said Lansky.
