State police in Greensburg are looking to question this woman who allegedly damaged a car during a dispute Thursday over a parking space at Walmart in Unity. Troopers estimate more than $500 damage was done to the victim’s vehicle. Anyone with information can call 724-832-3288.

State police in Greensburg are trying to identity of a woman accused of keying another woman’s car outside Walmart in Unity during a dispute over a parking space.

According to Trooper Daniel Poponick, a woman entered the store’s parking lot about 10:50 a.m. Thursday, located a parking space and then heard an unknown person “beep her horn.”

“(The victim) thought nothing of it, exited her vehicle and entered Walmart to drop off a prescription,” Poponick said. She returned to her car a short time later and described to troopers “hearing a metal-on-metal screeching sound coming from the driver’s side of her vehicle.”

“She then observed the suspect standing beside her vehicle with keys in her left hand. The suspect keyed the victim’s car on the driver’s side from front to back,” Poponick said.

When the victim asked for the suspect’s information, the woman ignored her and walked into the store. Troopers on Monday released a photograph the victim took of the suspect and are asking the public’s help identifying the woman.

Poponick estimated the damage is going to be more than $500. He said the suspect was operating a newer model Chevrolet Sonic.

Anyone with information can call state police at 724-832-3288.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
