The victim was interviewed and a stalking case was documented against the suspect. On March 22, an officer was conducting extra patrol in the area, due to the victim’s fear of the suspect, and just as the victim arrived home from work, the suspect ran a posted stop sign near the victim’s home, abruptly stopped in front of her residence and began yelling at her.
