— A Rock Hill woman who told authorities she “just lost it” on Saturday, punched out the back window of one car, then used a jack to shatter the glass of another car, police say.

Police went to a Chandler Drive home at about 1:45 p.m., where they found a woman, 20, standing near a car, appearing to be “irate about something,” according to a Rock Hill police report. The woman, whose hands were bleeding, told police she broke the windows because she was upset with the way her boyfriend was treating her.

The woman said she went to speak with her boyfriend, who is the father of her child, about his seeing another woman, the report states. She knocked on the front door, but no one would answer.

She became upset and walked to a woman’s 1995 Chevrolet Blazer and punched the car’s back window, shattering it completely, the report states. She then took a vehicle jack, she told police, and smashed out one of the car’s rear passenger side windows.

When she began to walk away, her boyfriend’s brother stepped outside, the report states, and dared her to damage his car because he wanted a new one. She complied, police said, grabbing the tire jack and destroying the back window of his car.

The woman told police she “just lost it” because of relationship problems with her child’s father. She told authorities she was sorry and was willing to pay for the damages.

EMS bandaged the woman’s hands and took her to the hospital, where she received stitches, the report states. Police charged her with two counts of damage to real property.
