Road rage in Owasso gets a person of interest caught on camera.

A man is accused of tailing a woman and then hopping out of his car at the QuikTrip near 96th Street North and Garnett Road and vandalizing her SUV.

In a FOX23 News exclusive, the victim says the accused needs to be stopped.

"I wasn't hateful, I just told him that you are going to cause a wreck, someone is going to get mad at you or else it's going to get worse," said GiGi Holmes.

She says while on her lunch break to QuikTrip to get a tea she noticed a man in her rear-view  window getting too close to her car.

"He would come up and then back off. I couldn't even see the front of his car because he was so close to me. I knew he was about to hit me," said Holmes.

She says she put her hands up and then saw the suspect throw his hands up too. When they pulled into the QuikTrip she says he got out and looked at her.

"I said you know you really need to not get on people's rear end because you are going to cause an accident. He mouthed me and I went inside and got myself a tea," said Holmes.

Police released surveillance photos showing a person of interest inside the QuikTrip leave the store. Holmes says when he walked out, she saw the man make a bold move.

"Came out right in front of me and keyed my car," said Holmes.

She showed the mark to FOX23 News that stretches down the passenger side door. Her husband tried to repair it but it will need to go to a shop.

She says the man got in his small maroon car but Holmes says she tried to stop him by opening the door.

"He was taking off and I knew he was going to hit me or run over my foot and I was like no you just need to let him go," said Holmes.

She called police who told her to stay there. Nearly a week later, he hasn't been caught.

"You shouldn't be going around destroying people's expensive property," said Holmes.

Police describe the man seen inside the QuikTrip after the road rage incident as a white male, short hair, wearing a dark sleeveless T-shirt, blue jeans, dark shoes and dark hat. It is possible this subject has a gray or white goatee. The person of interest also has a a tattoo on his right arm that appears to be a skull figure with tribal art surrounding it. If you know this individual, please call the Owasso Police Tip Line at 918-272-COPS (2677) or the Owasso Police Investigative Division at 918-272-2244.

You know what's funny about all of this I saw the whole thing. She says she was calm wrong if this lady would have been banging on my car window and cussing at me the way she was doing to him I would have went off. This guy walked straight out to his car and she followed him started hitting his window again and tried to open his door he was just trying to get away. The way I see it the key mark was probably already on her car and she saw a perfect opportunity to get a police report so the insurance company would pay for it. So if cussing and banging on the mans car is calm. I would hate to see this lady calm nice try chick!!!!
