LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man has been arrested for stalking a woman and violating an emergency protective order.

An arrest warrant says Fred Rodney Johnson, 35, became angry with the woman when he dropped her off at Sullivan University on July 17. Johnson stood in the hallway outside a classroom, looked through a window and began screaming at the woman. After she went into the hallway to speak with him, the warrant says Johnson told her "if I can't have you, no one can."

When Johnson walked into an administrators office, campus security was called. He was escorted from the building and told not to return to the campus.

Two days later, Johnson showed up at the woman's home around 1 a.m. and started banging on doors and windows screaming to be left inside. When the woman opened the door after she thought Johnson had left he pushed his way inside and refused to leave. After ripping a bracelet off the woman's wrist, Johnson left.

The next day Johnson confronted the woman at Chickasaw Park forcing her and her friends to leave the park to avoid him. The warrant says Johnson later made threats to the woman by phone calls and text messages.

On July 21, Johnson was back on the Sullivan campus where he again confronted the woman before leaving the campus.

Johnson was arrested July 23 on charges of stalking, menacing, violation of an EPO/DVO, and criminal trespassing. The arrest warrant says between 2009 and 2013 Johnson was convicted of several charges where the woman was listed as the victim.
