Alleged stalker says 'he will always be there'
BAKER - A man accused of stalking a woman using phone calls, various social media websites and handwritten notes turned himself into Baker Police on Sunday.
28-year-old David Johnson was arrested and booked on charges of stalking and improper telephone communication after his female victim contacted Baker PD to inform them that he continued to harass her despite numerous complaints.
The victim said it all began when Johnson began calling and texting her to the extent that she had to change her phone number after asking him to stop. The harassment continued online on Facebook and Instagram where Johnson set up "fake" accounts to message her even after she had blocked his accounts. The victim told police she found handwritten notes from Johnson on her front door on multiple occasions.
According to the victim, Johnson even tried to contact her by using friends, fellow church members and her own friends. The police report says he even bought the victim's 2-year-old daughter toys in an attempt to get the woman to spend time with him and referred to the daughter by names that only her mother uses.
After she became alarmed by his behavior and took steps to avoid him, Johnson reportedly told her that "God sent him to be with her" and "he will always be there."
The strange behavior on Johnson's part eventually led to the victim reaching out to Baker Police to stop the harassment. They contacted Johnson who turned himself in to law enforcement shortly thereafter.
