Madison County deputies arrested a man on a Madison County warrant that charges him with first-degree stalking and second-degree burglary early Thursday morning.
According to the warrant, on Oct. 9, the victim in the case talked with a Richmond police officer about Andy Wren, 28, Hickory Lane, Berea. The victim said she started texting with him back and forth from June 1 and Oct. 6.
The victim told the officer the texts began becoming weird, and Wren would send stuff such as, "'We are meant to be together and I'm your boyfriend now,'" the warrant reads. The victim told Wren she didn't want any contact with him, but he continued to text the victim.
On Aug. 8, the victim called police because Wren was parked outside the victim's home at 5:30 a.m. and the victim didn't know what to do, the warrant states. Officers responded and told Wren not to be around the victim's home and criminally trespassed him from the property. The victim also applied for an IPO, but it was never served because Wren couldn't be found.
Later, the victim meant to text another person to tell that person the victim needed cigarettes, but the victim instead accidentally texted Wren, and he said he would bring the victim money and cigarettes. He said he would leave them in the victim's door, the warrant states. The victim told Wren to not contact her anymore.
That evening, Wren's family member went to the victim's home and started beating on the door. The family member wanted their money back, and the victim said she didn't know what the family member was talking about, according to the warrant.
The victim called police again, but when an officer responded, the family member was gone, the warrant states. The officer who responded then went to serve Wren with the IPO summons and charged him with harassing communications.
On Oct. 6, the victim and another person were inside the victim's residence with the door open and screen door closed when they heard someone enter the home, the warrant states. They investigated and found Wren inside the residence. When the victim told him to leave, Wren responded by saying someone told him he needed to be there.
The victim told Wren to leave again, and he left, the warrant states.
Wren was arrested on Brooklyn Boulevard and was taken to the Madison County Detention Center. He was released later Thursday morning, according to online jail records.
