LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is facing charges that he stalked two women, one of them for nearly three years.

Louisville Metro police arrested Hezekiah Boone, 39, early May 13 after an arrest warrant was issued for him the day before.

The warrant states on the night of June 28, 2011, Boone climbed onto the second floor balcony at the house of one woman and looked into her bedroom window. When she saw someone and screamed, Boone fled. Police say Boone fell during the incident and left blood evidence at the scene.



Boone later joined the tennis club where the woman was a member and watched her from behind curtains as she played. The woman also said Boone would wait in the parking lot and watch her leave. Police say Boone's actions later escalated to following the woman after she left. The warrant says Boone was asked by family member of the woman to leave her alone, but he would resume his actions after a short period.

Police said Boone was seen as recently as April 12 watching the woman's home from a nearby parking lot.

The second victim said Boone used his shoulder to strike her during an altercation on Nov. 21, 2014. Three days later, the woman found a disk containing photos of her family taken without their knowledge.

A petition for an emergency protective order was granted by a judge and served to Boone on Dec. 1. The warrant say Boone violated the EPO on Dec. 10.

On Dec. 23, the warrant states the victim found more disks belonging to Boone which had photos taken in public places of her family, the previous woman Boone is accused of stalking and random other women. In each photo it appears the persons in the photos were unaware they were being photographed.

Since April 28 police say Boone has tried to use a follow the woman's cell phone by using a GPS tracking app, confronted her at Churchill Downs on Derby Day and appeared at her home on three occasions, once removing a screen in an attempt to get in.

Boone was charged with two counts of stalking and is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on $50,000 cash bond. He is due back in court on May 22.
