Mischief of Van Over Parking Spot Rage

Mischief of Van Over Parking Spot Rage
July 10th, 2017 - Police & the Community

Barrie Police Service is looking for the public's assistance in identifying a male who took his parking lot rage to the next level causing damage to a Barrie family's van.

On Saturday, June 24th, 2017 at 2:00pm the complainant and his family parked their van in the Walmart parking lot at 35 Mapleview Drive West, in the City of Barrie.  As they exited the vehicle a male approached the vehicle and accused them of taking his parking spot. The male yelled at the complainant but soon returned to his vehicle and pulled away.

When the family returned to their vehicle a short time later they found both doors on the drivers side of the vehicle had been scratched.  A review of the store surveillance shows the same male who confronted them went into the store but then returned to their vehicle and caused the damage.


  • Male, white
  • Mid-late 30's
  • Medium build with pronounced stoop of his neck
  • Medium length brown hair with receding hairline and goatee 
  • Wearing a grey t-shirt and dark pants

Petersen of the Barrie Police Services at 705-725-7025 ext. 2764 or npetersen@barriepolice.ca.
