WTVR reports, New Jersey officers have tracked down and arrested a suspect in a malicious wounding case at a Central Virginia gas station that left one man bloodied, and his boat and car damaged.
26-year-old Angela Jones was arrested Wednesday in connection with the April 1 assault at an Exxon station, in Caroline County Virginia, which is being considered a possible hate crime.
Witnesses described seeing a suspect use a hammer to inflict damage to a SUV and a boat being towed in the parking lot of the gas station.
Jones, according to officials, attacked the owner of the SUV and boat while allegedly referring to the victims as “rich” and “white.”
Bob, who asked his last name not be published, and his wife had stopped at the gas station while driving back home from Florida to Massachusetts.
"This lady was a couple pumps over and talking to me and yelling at somebody about having a message for her. I had no idea what she was talking about," Bob said. "I was coming around the side of the car and next thing I know a car blocks me in. She comes out of her car gets in my face and yelling at me about some sort of message I got for her."
He said he attempted to ignore her, but she eventually threatened to put a hole in his "fancy boat."
That's when, Bob said, the woman grabbed a hammer.
During the attack, the couple said the woman said she was "sick of fancy white people."
"She actually took a hammer and she hit his vehicle and the boat," Caroline County Sheriff Tony Lippa said. "She actually clawed him. He took her down to the ground to prevent her from doing any more damage."
Jones will face charges of malicious wounding, assault, and destruction of property.
