SAN CARLOS – A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking a San Carlos woman, authorities said.
The arrest follows an investigation that began in May, when the man allegedly went to the woman’s home and wrote her name in a red substance – possibly blood – on a wall, said Sgt. Joe Cang of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office in a news release.
Cang said the man and the woman started a friendship in 2016, and in 2019, the man “wanted to be more than friends and started harassing and stalking” the woman.
When the woman moved to San Diego to attend college, the man followed her and stalked her on campus, Cang said. Police arrested him in March 2019 on suspicion of stalking and violating a restraining order. He was arrested again the following month.
Cang said the man was released from jail earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The woman, meanwhile, moved to San Carlos to continue her studies online.
The man was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City on charges of stalking, committing a felony while out on bail and disobeying a court order, Cang said.
Anyone with information related to the case can contact Detective Josh Wang at 650-363-4055 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
