Stalking. After months of harassment from his neighbor, a 35-year-old Ormond Beach man decided he'd had enough. It was time to get the police involved.

The man told officers of problems he'd been having with his 43-year-old neighbor dating back to March. In one incident, the neighbor put a camera facing into the man's side yard, only taking it down when the man put up his own camera, according to a police report. In another, when Amazon confused their packages, the man put his neighbor's items by his front door and was "aggressively" told by the neighbor to ring his doorbell or knock next time he came onto his property. 

The man told police his neighbor "constantly watches him and his family" and speaks to them through his doorbell camera, according to the police report. The man also claimed the neighbor told him in March that he needed to sell his house, stating "I have people who will buy your house. I want you to sell it." 

Police spoke with the neighbor and issued him a trespass warning, advising him not to go on the man's property. The officer also warned him he could be charged with stalking if he didn't stay away from the man and his family.

No entry

Battery touch/strike. Police arrested a 21-year-old Ormond Beach man who broke a hurricane shutter and shattered a window at his mother's house.

The victim told police that her son arrived at the house and asked to come inside for the night, but she noted he was acting aggressive, so refused him entry, according to a police report. That's when her son began to rip off the hurricane shutter of a window at the front of the house, which he then used to break the window. Some of the glass hit his mother's arm, resulting in minor cuts. 

She wished to press charges.
