Default Someone hit my hood. Process to fix?

I bought a 2015 Passat TDI SEL 2 months ago and have had bad luck with it. Nothing has been the cars fault, nor mine. A month into owning it a rock hit my windshield and broke it, so I'm getting that replaced.

Now on Tuesday when i got home I noticed I had two bad dents on my hood. I know it wasn't there in the morning, but didn't notice it when I left. I also know I didn't hit anything on the way home, because I would have definitely felt it.

Basically what had happened was I went back and watched the security cameras at work. Someone came into our parking lot, stole an AC fan motor, and as they were leaving I guess they were losing their grip and lost control of their bicycle. I was the very last car near the road and when he lost control he veered torwards my car and hit it with the fan motor. He didn't fall, so he just grazed it, but it did damage. Now this is school board property, so it's considered vandalizm, which is good news for me, because the schools insurance will pay for it.

My only problem is I don't know if that is something they can fix, or would it require a whole new hood? I'm going to go to a body shop next week and find out. I was told the hood was aluminum and it would need a whole new hood, so I'm assuming it's going to be somewhat expensive to 'fix.'


Bad footage as the camera isn't great quality, and I recorded off my cell phone. The vertical video doesn't help either.
