Four in Your Corner obtained surveillance video showing the moments a woman's car was damaged by two men with a shopping cart after a road rage incident in Cape Coral.

Two weeks ago, Fox 4 told you about a woman who -- who didn't want to be identified -- who said she was driving on Veteran's Memorial Parkway three weeks prior when the car in front of her didn't go at a green light. She said she honked her horn and the two men in the car started driving erratically. She said at one point, they pulled their car in front of hers and slammed on their brakes. She thinks they did this to cause a crash. She said she switched lanes and gave them the finger and thought that was th end of it.

She said she parked her car at the Target on Veteran's Memorial Parkway and Santa Barbara Boulevard and went inside. When she came back out to her car, she said it had scratches on either side -- an estimated $3,000 in damage.

Surveillance video shows two men push a shopping cart by one side of her car, turn it around in a circle behind her car, then push it by the other side of her car.

The two men are still on the run, and she said she's worried for her safety.

"Every day I'm driving home, I'm looking, wondering 'Are they following me? Will they come by my house?'" the woman said. "It makes me very fearful that people will actually follow you -- two men will follow a woman -- and damage her car."

She filed a report with Cape Coral Police.

One man is described as in his mid-30s with salt and pepper hair, the other in his 20s, around 5'5. They were in a red Camry-style car.

If you have any information about this incident, you're asked to call Cape Coral Police.
