DECATUR — A Decatur woman told police she damaged her former boyfriend’s car, but not because she wanted him back.

The vehicle, parked in the 2400 block of North Maple Avenue, was vandalized Sunday night to the point where it will need repairs costing $1,200. The 20-year-old woman is quoted as telling police: “I was just mad. I don’t want to be in a relationship with him, but I was mad because he doesn’t want to be in a relationship with me. Usually they come running back.”

A sworn Decatur Police affidavit described the damage — “numerous deep scratches disfiguring a rear door on the driver’s side” — as being too deep to have been done by something like a key.

The affidavit said the woman later admitted to causing the damage with a razor blade and said she had carried it out in fit of anger. She was booked on a preliminary charge of criminal damage; all preliminary charges are subject to review by the state attorney’s office. The woman is free after posting $3,000 bond.
