FARMINGTON — Police charged a local man with stalking after a woman called 911 to report that he was trying to get into her apartment and had been texting her and knocking on her door.
Christian Morgan, 29, was arrested Wednesday night on a felony charge of stalking, Sheriff's Department Lt. Niles Yeaton said Thursday. The charge was elevated from a misdemeanor because of past domestic violence convictions, Yeaton said.
Morgan was being held without bail at the Franklin County jail in Farmington until he goes before a judge. He and the woman had a prior relationship and she told police that she had told Morgan to leave her alone, Yeaton said.
