A College Station woman remained in the Brazos County Jail on Thursday night after police say she damaged two cars with a shovel and threatened a woman with the tool.

According to Bryan police, around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, authorities were called to a home on Williams Glen Drive on the report of a disturbance. Police spoke with a man who said Zunika Schanaiv Penland, 28, whom he knew, had damaged his car with a shovel, including breaking the windshield out. A woman at the home said Penland had broken some flower pots as well. Police wrote a report and left.

Around 11 p.m., authorities were called back to the home, where police say more windows had been broken out of the car and new dents could be seen. Authorities estimated $7,000 in damage had been done to the vehicle and $2,000 in damage had been done to a second vehicle at the home.

Witnesses said they saw Penland damaging the vehicles, and one person took a video, which police viewed. In the video, Penland could be heard screaming at the woman that she would swing the shovel at her and held the shovel in a batter’s stance, police said. Penland also could be seen hitting the cars with the shovel, according to a police report. No injuries were reported.

Penland was later located in a nearby parking lot, police said, and she had a shovel in her car.

She is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, and criminal mischief over $2,500, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail. She is being held on $35,370 bond.
