Angela M. Jones, 26, faces potential hate crime charges after allegedly beating the man at an Exxon Station off Interstate 95 in Caroline County, Va., according to WTVR.com.
Jones has not been located or arrested as of 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, according to a spokesman for the New Jersey State Police.
The incident began when Jones approached the Massachusetts man as he fueled his Porsche and began yelling at him, authorities told the television station.
When the man tried to ignore her, she began bashing his boat and Porsche with a hammer, the report said. He was then struck in the face with the hammer several times when he approached her, authorities told the television station.
Some of her comments referred to him being rich and white, the report said. Jones, who is black, also said she was "sick of fancy white people," the man told the television station in an interview.
