Troopers look to identify woman accused of keying car at Unity Walmart
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.
