A New Jersey woman was caught on video busting out the windows of her ex-boyfriend’s car with a hammer while their children sat terrified and crying in the backseat.
A video that has gone viral captured a disgruntled woman in Paterson on Sunday wielding a hammer and walking around the vehicle smashing all the windows. The children, a boy and a girl, can be heard screaming and crying in the background.
Relatives told Univision the driver is the woman’s ex and the two kids, 3 and 5, are their children.
“This is very sad, right?” the woman’s cousin, who chose not be identified, told Univision in Spanish. “This is not right. I don’t know why this happened.”
The man is heard on camera telling the angry woman that shards of glass had injured the youngsters, but the woman ignores and keeps swinging.
“You cut the babies,” the man can be heard saying in Spanish.
Afterward, the woman opens the door, grabs the children and puts them into another car.
“You’re going to rot in prison, you heard?” the man said, according to the video.
The woman hasn’t been identified, and a motive for the incident was not immediately clear.
Paterson police did not say whether the woman in the video has been arrested.
This should definitely be considered child endangerment. How could she subject her kids to all that flying glass?
