Baytown police looking for woman who keyed disabled veteran's vehicle in Target parking lot

BAYTOWN, Texas (KTRK) -- Baytown police are looking for a woman who they say keyed a disabled veteran's vehicle that was parked in a handicapped parking spot.

Police said it happened on June 9 in the parking lot of the Target on the 4500 block of Garth Road around 2:30 p.m. They said the vehicle had the proper placards. Both license plates belong to a disabled veteran.

"He's carried rucksacks and jumped out of vehicles. He's got a bad back. She doesn't know his story," said Karen Moon, whose husband retired after 24 years in the Army. "He served overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq. He is decorated and disabled. He was driving the black car that was "keyed."

The damage was reported to Target and the Baytown Police Department.

"It's down the metal. She has to have serious hate or anger issues to take that much metal off," said Moon, who felt compelled to stick up for her husband.

The police department released a photo from Target's security cameras showing the woman walking out of the store and posted it on its Facebook page asking for help to identify her.

Police said the woman possibly drives a silver Nissan Juke.
The damage to the vehicle is approximately $2,700, said Moon. She wants the woman to pay for the damage in more than just dollars.
