Woman Keyed Car at Glastonbury Dance Recital: Police

Glastonbury police have arrested a woman who is accused of keying another woman’s car during a dance recital at a middle school.

Jasmin Ayala, 36, of Manchester, is accused of keying an acquaintance’s car during a dance recital at Smith Middle School in Glastonbury on June 5 and causing thousands of dollars in damage.

"Ribbons of paint were like lying on the top of the car that's how deep she went," Dr. Bridget Cooper said about her car.

Police said the two women had a prior argument and happened to be at the same recital.

"It was upsetting, felt violating. I felt like I had been attacked," Cooper said.

There was surveillance video, according to police, and Ayala is accused of causing $10,700 worth of damage.

She was arrested on June 22, charged with first-degree criminal mischief and has been released on a promise to appear, according to online court records.

She is due back in court on July 18.
