A store employee in the 100 block of North Carroll Boulevard followed a woman to her car Thursday morning, yelled profanities at her and hit her vehicle Thursday morning, according to a police report.

The report says the woman went to the business to get a job application around 11 a.m. Thursday. She told police employees were acting evasive about giving her an application, so she decided to leave. A Denton Police Department spokesperson said the name of the business wasn’t listed in the report.

While the caller was walking to her car, she said one of the employees walked out and began screaming profanities at her, according to the report. As the woman tried to get into her car, the staffer also hit her vehicle, the report says.

The caller does want to press charges. An investigation is ongoing.
