An Elkhorn City man was arrested this week on a charge of stalking.
According to court documents, on Thursday, Kentucky State Police Trooper R. Newsom responded to a call the agency had received from the alleged victim in the case, reporting that Steven Slone, 42, of Biggs Branch Road, was following her, making threats toward her.
KSP CVE Officer Jamie Fields responded, the citation said, and made contact with Slone and the female at Marrowbone and separated them. The citation said that, once separated, Slone followed the female to Millard School, where she locked herself in her vehicle and called KSP again.
Slone, the citation said, stated he thought it was a misunderstanding and thought he could meet and try to talk to her. The citation said that Slone had been told by Fields to not be back around the female, who obtained an emergency protective order against Slone.
A brief time later, KSP received another call from the female who reported that Slone was outside her place of work in Coal Run. When Newsom arrived, the citation said, Slone was sitting in his vehicle in front of the business and stated he was going to “do what it takes” to talk to the woman “no matter what.” The EPO, the citation said, had not been served against Slone at the time of the incident.
Slone was lodged in the Pike County Detention Center on a charge of second-degree stalking.
