    MrsEdamame:  I’m glad you took pictures.

    I’d report it, not just to management but to your insurance and potentially the police if he doesn’t own up.  Technically, if he hit your car and didn’t leave a note, that’s a hit and run and can result in serious penalties including jail time (at least in California).

    You probably have uninsured motorist property damage insurance, which will cover this if you can’t prove it was him. (Are there any security cameras that might have caught it on tape?)

    Considering I am still dealing with insurance because some jackass backed into our rental car and left, I would report his ass. I have a 1k deductible, so total, I’ve ended up paying around 1100, because I don’t want insurance to pay $99 and raise my premium.

    GO TO THE POLICE. You have evidence of a hit and run and prior illegal activities (defacing or otherwise tampering with a handicapped space is illegal!) and he could be served a hefty fine and possible jail time for both, as well as being fired!

    I would absolutely report it! If you live in apartments that are owned by a management company, I would go to the company rather than your building manager.
