New Albany man charged for stalking, confinement

Arrest of man comes after string of odd encounters



The woman went to NAPD headquarters the same day and made a harassment report. 

While speaking with an officer, Conner called the woman’s cell phone numerous times, according to the affidavit.

The officer answered one of the phone calls and told Conner repeatedly that he needed to stop contacting the woman.

Conner told the officer that he understood he is to have no contact with the woman and said, “You can tell her I, personally, would not contact her again,” according to the affidavit.

The officer asked Conner if he was insinuating that he would have someone else contact the woman. 

“Charles Conner would not answer the question,” the officer wrote in the affidavit.

The officer suggested to the woman that she take out a protective order against Conner. According to the Floyd County Clerk’s Office, the woman took the order out Oct. 1, 2012.

New Albany police were dispatched to the home where the woman was living. She told the responding officer that Conner had approached her after she got into her vehicle parked on Pearl Street after a work shift about 6:30 p.m. She said that Conner approached the vehicle and attempted to open the passenger door, then he walked around the front of the vehicle to the driver’s side door.

The window was partially down, she told the officer, when she told Conner that she was going to call police.

She told police that Conner said to her, “You had better not.”

She then drove away, the woman reported to police.

According to court records, the incident led to Conner being charged with invasion of privacy — violation of a protective order, a class A misdemeanor. The court issued a warrant for his arrest and he was later released and a no contact order was issued by the court. Conner is scheduled to appear for a pretrial conference in Floyd County Circuit Court Jan. 29 in reference to the invasion of privacy charge.
