SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - A Sioux Falls car detailing business is helping a Salem man after he was the victim of racially-charged vandalism last week.

Last week, Joshua Gadsden was the victim of vandalism when his vehicle was spray-painted with racial slurs and swastikas.

“Superior Detail” located in Sioux Falls says several people offered to pay to get the car detailed from top to bottom, removing the spray paint. But when the owner of Superior Detail Ryan Murray saw the news stories about Gadsden’s car he knew he had to take action.

Superior Detail decided to detail the car for free and they didn’t stop there.

“He was just real calm and collected. He had a couple of questions with some stereo stuff, so we just figured, you know what, let’s go ahead and take care of the whole car for him. Take care of some of the stereo stuff that he had going on, just make some good out of the whole situation,” said Murray.

After the incident, Gadsden says he hopes things can change for the better and says he believes “change is the only thing that can make this world unified.”

If you or anyone you know has any information involving this hate crime you are asked to call the McCook County Sheriff’s Office at (605)425-2761.
