SUGAR GROVE – A resident of the 200 block of Brompton Lane, Sugar Grove, reported Nov. 13 that electronic harassment had escalated into death threats, according to Sugar Grove police reports released after a Freedom of Information Act request.

The victim told police he met the woman through a friend in person, once at his home in Sugar Grove, and then again at a theme park, the report stated.

She “started sending incessant messages to him via Facebook, Instagram and other media sources from approximately March of 2018 and extended to September of 2019,” the report stated.

He “never actually stated for her to discontinue speaking to him based on the types of messages that were being sent,” the report stated. “(H)e was hoping if he would ignore her constant messaging that she would stop, but to no avail.”

The woman “continually appears to have a conversation with herself on Facebook messenger with no response from” him, the report stated.

Her messages included, “Lobster steak scallops and pasta – a $150 meal – if you don’t want me to go to the (expletive) cops,” the report stated.

“I’ll kill you. Go to the police about it. I will gut you the (expletive) alive,” another of her messages stated.

Then she called his work asking for him and rang his doorbell once but left, the report stated.

The resident told police he did not want to pursue charges, but wanted her communication to him to stop.

Police called the woman and told her the resident did not want to receive her communications and she was to stop or face criminal charges, the report stated.

She was also advised to stay away from his job and his house, to which she agreed, the report stated.

Police told the resident to block and discontinue all communication from her and to call police if she continued.

The resident was also advised on how to obtain a civil no contact/stalking order of protection, the report stated.
