RPD: Man stalked woman, burglarized her home

BEREA — Officers charged a Grindstone Court man with stalking and burglary after he harassed a female acquaintance for two months, according to a Richmond police report.

Kevin Woods, 45, was charged Tuesday with second-degree stalking and second-degree burglary.

Woods engaged in a course of conduct from Feb. 1 until Tuesday that served no purpose than to harass, alarm, frighten and annoy the victim, according to the RPD. Police alleged that he entered the victim’s home on several occasions, including at night while the victim was sleeping, without her permission and refused to leave when requested.

Woods sent numerous emails and left numerous voice messages on the victim’s telephones, the report stated. In addition, he called several acquaintances of the victim as part of the harassment.

A warrant was issued Tuesday for Woods’ arrest, and he was taken into custody the same day then lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
