INDIANAPOLIS -- Members of a neighborhood on Indianapolis' northwest side are asking police to do something about a woman caught on camera attacking neighbors with a yard sign and threatening their lives.

The woman was seen on video pulling signs out of Miguel Rios and Luvia Roman's yard and saying she'll kill them, all over a property line dispute on Twin Creeks Drive, just north of Northwestway Park.

Neighbors say the woman has a history of harassing minority neighbors. Corey Banks, a neighbor from across the street, said he's been called the N-word multiple times by her. 

Rios and Roman bought the house next door to the woman about a year and a half ago. They say the woman has called the health department, narcotics and child protective services in an effort to get them to move.

"I'm scared for my life," Rios said. "I'm scared for my family's life. And it's just not right."

Police have been called to the neighborhood eight times in the last month, but after Sunday's outburst, the neighbors have had enough. The family is afraid it's only a matter of time until somebody gets hurt. 

"It's just gotten to a point where she says 'I'm gonna kill you,'" Rios said. "But we do not know when that night is going to happen."

Police were back in the neighborhood Monday to talk to the woman, but no charges have been filed in the case. 

There was no answer when a WRTV crew knocked on the woman's door Monday. Police say the incident is under investigation with no further updates.
