Arrest Warrant out for Stalker but he’s still free (Virginia)
I have a stalker since late 2018. I know his name, address, DOB, right down to his SSN (he posted it himself publicly online). I have a PPO that expires 04/xx/2023 that he’s violated numerous times. In September I swore out the first warrant for his arrest through the county in which he resides.
He is actively dodging police and has gone as far as parking in the grocery store parking lot behind his home and sneaking in and out of his house.
The police have tried to serve him and arrest him on numerous occasions but he never answers.
What can I legally do to help law enforcement get this creep? (I’m not sure if this is against the rules, so if it is please feel free to delete).
Edit: Please beware, the person in question is commenting below. Please ignore him.
Edit2: Someone confused me for my own stalker somehow and messaged me asking for “my” (his) side of the story. So, I’ll spell it out here, as I did for him:
To get a PPO you have to go to court and prove that your safety and well-being are at risk.
To swear out a warrant for a violation of the PPO you have to go before a magistrate and prove the PPO was violated.
I don’t know what to tell you if you think it’s normal for a stranger to harass you to the point of needing a PPO against them and then for them to perpetually violate it…
How would he have known about this post if he wasn’t monitoring my socials? Food for thought.
