MAN ARRESTED FOR STALKING, HARASSMENT
Police arrested a 37-year-old man after the victim, his ex-girlfriend, told police that he called, texted and emailed her from December 12, 2017 through January 22 and allegedly said that he would ruin her life if she did not help him with his financial troubles.
She said that she asked the suspect, Christos Kalatoudis, to stop contacting her but he allegedly continued, and she said that she knew the calls and texts were from him because she recognized his phone number and email and recognized his voice in messages.
The victim also told police that around December 12, Kalatoudis allegedly sent an email in which he had attached private photos that showed her fully undressed on a bed and she said that when she didn’t respond to the email, he forwarded the content to her employer. She told police that she had not consented to having the photos posted online or emailed and she said that Kalatoudis allegedly sent the photos because she didn’t respond and because she wouldn’t help him with his financial troubles.
Kalatoudis was arrested for alleged aggravated harassment inside the 13th Precinct on Tuesday, February 13 and was also charged with stalking, attempted assault and attempted coercion. His lawyer could not be reached for a comment.
