The GoFundMe read: ‘Since my childhood, I have been going to Cam Huong restaurant, a cherished establishment in the Little Saigon neighborhood in Oakland.

This is the 4th business in Little Saigon that has experienced vehicular vandalism since August, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage.’
