National City business owner speaks out after his business was vandalized – NBC 7 San Diego
Diva’s Fashion in National City has been vandalized for the second time in less than a month.
“Monday night around 9:30 p.m. I was here closing the store with my nephew and niece and when we just heard some clicking noises, like gunshots and the three of us ran outside to see this that had happened and that’s when we saw a gray car accelerating, ”said Dulce Tablas, daughter of Divas Fashion Owner.
Tablas told NBC 7 that the family business had been vandalized weeks earlier.
“Three weeks ago they broke the door down around 2 am and I got a call in the morning telling me the window was broken and I had to go there. I was very disappointed to see that the glass had been smashed like this, ”Tablas said.
According to Tablas, the damage is expected to cost the company around $ 5,000.
The company struggled during the pandemic and this additional cost will place an additional financial burden on Diva’s Fashion.
“Right now we think it’s going to cost over $ 5,000 to fix the door and window and we’re also trying to get a better camera system,” Tablas said.
Divas Fashion is not the only company affected by vandalism.
National City Police told NBC 7 that other businesses in National City have been robbed in recent weeks.
Anyone with information regarding the incident at Divas Fashion is urged to call the National Town Police Department.
