Woman Scratched Racial Slurs Into Ex’s Car: Police

South Windsor Police

Laura Avery is accused of scratching racial slurs into her ex-boyfriend's car and leaving dozens of racial messages.

South Windsor police arrested a woman who is accused of harassing her ex-boyfriend, scratching racial slurs into his car and leaving dozens of messages on his phone.

Police arrested Laura Avery, 39, of Rocky Hill, on a warrant on Friday.

In April, her ex-boyfriend contacted police to report that Avery had scratched a racial epithet into the passenger side of his car and started leaving phone messages with the same slur, according to police.

When the victim left a parking area on Chapel Road in April, a Jeep Commander drove into the side of his car and he recognized the vehicle as Avery’s, according to  police. 

He pulled into a business plaza on Route 5 business to contact police. Avery had taken off before police arrived, but she had already called his phone more than 40 times, according to police.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Avery on Friday and charged her with second-degree intimidation based on bigotry/bias, first-degree criminal mischief, threatening in the second degree and reckless endangerment in the second degree.

She was held on $60,000 surety bond and appeared in Manchester Superior Court later Friday. She was released from custody and is due back in court on June 27. 

Avery has an attorney and NBC Connecticut left a message with the law office.
