A Virginia woman who found that her gay-pride emblem on her car had been covered up by an anti-LGBTQ sticker posted about it on Facebook.

"At first I was a bit confused and in disbelief," Cynthia Moore, 22, told NBC News. "And then I just got really angry."

Then Moore heard from police, who after seeing her post reached out to ask her to file a report.

The Norfolk Police Department is investigating the incident and said the suspect, once caught, will be charged with a misdemeanor vandalism charge. The incident is not recognized as a hate crime under Virginia's current legislation, as it is not related to an individual's race, religion or national origin, according to the department.
