SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – After a Pleasant Grove teen was the target of vandalism, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell responded to a call-out for help for the young man on Twitter.

Seth Holdaway, the teen’s father, said his family has been the victim of various acts of vandalism and fears his son is being targetted.

In the most recent incident, the young boy found his car covered in cow manure, according to KSL 5 TV’s Ashley Kewish.

“My son, Luc, was mowing the lawn and he came in and told me someone drove past and yelled something very explicit at him,” Holdaway told Kewish. “They called him a stupid n-word. My son is adopted from Haiti.”

Luc’s car has been targetted multiple times. The most recent incident happed on his birthday, so he spent the day cleaning off his car, according to KSL 5 TV.

Twitter user @JimmyRex put a call out on Twitter for a group of people who wanted to get involved to make Luc feel welcome in the community.

“We are going to make sure he knows he’s loved here in Utah,” read the Tweet.

Gobert responded simply, “We definitely will!”

Mitchell responded to Kewish’s original tweet about the incident requesting his info “ASAP!”

Members of the Utah Jazz are known for helping community members and fans. Recently, Gobert flew a young cancer survivor from France to the United States to attend a few games. The trip was a celebration of the young fan’s recovery from Leukemia.

Donovan Mitchell recently gave a pair of his Purple Mountain shoes to Wyatt Page, a young man fighting brain cancer.

If you have any information regarding the vandalism above, you’re asked to contact Pleasant Grove or Lindon police.
