About a year-and-a-half ago, a Hispanic couple moved to an Indianapolis, Indiana, suburb on Twin Creeks Drive.

What should've been an exciting new chapter for their lives wound up being a period of torment.


Miguel Rios and Luvia Roman were not prepared to live next door to their racist neighbor.

According to Newsweek, a 67-year-old White woman named Vicki New repeatedly harassed the couple. She called child protection services and the health department to their home in attempts to intimidate them.

The "living nightmare" culminated in a combative confrontation where the troubled neighbor threatened to kill them. The altercation was caught on video.

New walked onto the couple's front lawn. She pulled up their "No Trespassing" sign and broke it in half.

When Rios tried to protect himself from New, she yelled:

"Touch me, I'll kill you!"

Roman shared her video on Facebook. From there it was shared across social media.

Watch it here:


New continued her tirade by ripping apart another sign and breaking it in half, while calling the couple "trash."

A voice from across the street can be heard, possibly telling New to calm down. But the riled woman responds by telling the person to go "back in her f**king house" and makes obscene gestures towards the intervening witness.



Previously, a contentious debate over property lines prompted Roman to purchase the signs to mark their yard. Since New agreed to implementing the signs, Roman had police install them on the couple's property.

After returning from dinner on Friday, Rios and Roman discovered the signs uprooted and thrown across their driveway.

Roman re-installed them on Sunday, which led to the altercation with New.


Rios and Roman decided not to press charges because police informed them the case was closed and there was nothing they could do.

Roman said:

"I've had videos for every time we call."
"But, [the police] say they have to catch her while she's doing it, which has never happened."

Fortunately, the couple has the other neighbors' support and they encourage the couple not to move.

"I have seen neighbors that I've never seen before. They stopped by and showed support and I really appreciate it."


But three days after the couple posted their video on Facebook, New was arrested.



Roman told RTV6:

"To me it felt great because it's been a long ride. I hate to say it this way, but the wicked witch is gone."

While the incident remains under investigation, New was charged with criminal trespass and battery resulting in bodily injury.



New maintains she never struck her neighbor and any video evidence showing her attacking her neighbor is doctored.

New told reporters:

"My neighbor was never struck, and if it's showing that in that manner it's been doctored."
"He lunged at me."

However she failed to address why she was destroying her neighbor's property or trespassing at the time.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
