A Hopkinsville man was arrested on stalking charges early this morning.
Officer Morgan Lageman was called to 930 LC Avenue just before 1am to the report of a man possibly trying to get in a duplex occupied by LaDonna Dove of Hopkinsville.
Police found 36-year old James Day standing behind the residence. He reportedly said he was attempting to retrieve a wad of money from underneath a shed behind the home.
The victim was able to provide text messages from a third party suggesting Day had been listening to her at her windows and attempting to get underneath her home.
Ms. Dove said Day’s actions caused her to fear for her safety and that Day continued to contact her, knowing she was court ordered to not have any contact with him.
Day, who is listed as 6-foot-5 and 330 pounds, was arrested and charged with 2nd degree stalking.
