A young Chinese-Australian family has been racially targetted for the third time in just one week over the coronavirus.
The residents in Knoxfield in Melbourne’s east woke on Wednesday to find the words ‘leave and die’ spray-painted across their garage.
The homeowners were targeted last Monday to find the words ‘COVID-19 die’ spray-painted across their garage.
The following morning on Tuesday they had a rock hurled through their window.

A family member who asked to be referred as Jackson is hoping that the vandals will stop attacking him and his family.
‘We really hope these people can stop from here and nothing will happen in the future,’ he told 7NEWS.
Police believe the same group of people are behind the racist attacks on the innocent family.
‘Everyone should be safe in their own home and unfortunately for our victim, this has occurred on three separate occasions,’ Detective Sargeant Daniel Taylor said.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews branded the attack as ‘evil’ and as ‘awful behaviour’.
‘There’s no place in our Victorian community for that sort of conduct,’ he said.
‘At a time when we should be coming together and supporting each other, it needs to be called out for what it is. It’s just appalling, absolutely appalling.’
Jackson said the family planned to install security cameras in hopes of finding the perpetrators.
‘I’m just scared. I’m busy buying CCTV systems, repairing glass and buying lamps,’ Jackson told the ABC after the initial attack.
‘I’m afraid these people will come back.’
Daniel Palmer, a designer and developer, shared the images of the graffiti that read ‘death to dog eaters’ on his street in Epping, 18km north-west of Sydney’s CBD, on Monday
The incident is the latest in a string of racist attacks on people of Chinese heritage over the spread of the coronavirus.
Earlier this month, in Epping in Sydney’s north-west a street with a large Asian population was covered in graffiti that read ‘death to dog eaters’.
Daniel Palmer who lives in the street shared the pictures online.
‘Week 2 of isolation: This s*** on my road in front of an Asian household in f***ing Epping,’ he captioned the images.
‘S*** like this lurks beneath the surface in society, and you usually only notice it if you’re ethnic when it creeps out in small bite-sized chunks.’
In Kyabram, north of Melbourne, Chinese and Nazi swastika flags were seen flown from a communications tower as part of an alleged racial attack.
The words #COVID-19 had been written on one of the Chinese flags.

One man was captured in footage cracking a whip outside the Chinese Embassy in Sydney and hurling racist remarks at people lining up outside.
The racial tirade went on for several minutes with the man claiming the Chinese ‘deliberately released coronavirus’.

‘You’re all wearing your masks and you know why you’re wearing your masks? You knew about it!
‘I’m onto you. I know you deliberately released this virus.
‘Wake up Australia! Be wise to these pr**ks.’
