Angela Jones Newark black woman attacks white couple at Virginia gas station: A case of reverse racism? A black woman faces possible hate crime charges.
Angela M. Jones a 26 year old Newark, New Jersey woman faces possible hate crime charges after allegedly attacking a man with a hammer and smashing his Porsche and boat at a Virginia gas station.
The incident which happened Saturday at an Exxon Station off Interstate 95 in Rutherglen, Caroline County, has since been described by police as a racially motivated attack.
Jones now faces charges of felonious assault, assault and battery, and two counts of intentional damage to property. Investigators have yet to say whether the woman will also face hate charges.
The incident according to WTVR began when Jones who was pumping gas in her vehicle a few pumps over approached the Massachusetts man as he fueled his Porsche and began yelling at him.
Explained the man who only identified himself as Bob: ‘I hear this lady, 2 pump islands over yelling something about a message. I’m like I don’t know who she’s talking to’.
But it gets better.
‘A young black woman gets in my face and starts yelling, you got a message from me you got a message for me with your fancy car, and fancy boat,’ Bob said. ‘She’s punching at me, she’s spitting.’
When Bob tried to ignore her, Jones began bashing his boat and Porsche with a hammer according to a police report.
But that was just the beginning….
From there, Jones allegedly then struck the man in the face with the hammer several times when he approached her.
Told Bob, ‘Her hand came up, my glasses go flying, she was starting to scratch the hell out of my face’.
And then there were the comments.
Witnesses told of hearing the woman having referred to the victim as being rich and white.
The victim also said Jones, said she was ‘sick of fancy white people’.
At one point during the attack, Jones’ hammer broke whilst the victim fended off his attacker.
When the victim’s wife returned from the bathroom, Jones allegedly made other disparaging remarks about race and class before spitting in the woman’s face according to a police report.
The incident left the ‘white’ husband bloodied following the attack.
Authorities in Virginia contacted New Jersey State Police, who were able to identify Jones after a witness took a photo of her vehicle.
She is wanted in Virginia on charges of malicious wounding, assault, and destruction of property.
The man and his wife, who gave their names only as Bob and Kathy were on their way home to Uxbridge, Mass. from Florida, according to Fox25Boston.com.
