NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Officials announced on Monday the arrest of a white couple on Long Island for allegedly harassing their black neighbor by hurling feces and dead squirrels in her yard. 

According to Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas, 57-year-old John McEneaney, and his 53-year-old girlfriend, Mindy Canarick, are accused of carrying out the attacks on neighbor Jennifer McLeggan from the time she moved into her Valley Stream home in October 2017 until last month.
