June 8, 2011 at 3:17 AM (PT)
Nationally syndicated personality DELILAH had hired a private detective to help rid her of a repeat stalker, and that detective helped get the 51-year-old SEATTLE man arrested MONDAY (6/6) afternoon. THE KITSAP SUN reports DELILAH's, personal assistant last week told the KITSAP COUNTY Sheriff's Office that several witnesses in PORT ORCHARD had seen and talked to the suspect. The man has a history of making unwanted gestures to DELILAH.
"The current owner of a restaurant formerly owned by DELILAH said the suspect had been leaving gifts for her there," wrote THE SUN. "A neighbor, who also is a sheriff's deputy, said the suspect was in the neighborhood asking questions. The deputy, who later learned of the alleged stalking, positively identified the man from a Department of Corrections photo, according to a sheriff's office report. Rene told deputies the suspect was jailed more than five years ago for stalking her."
DELILAH's gardener also told the paper that the suspect walked up to the house last week and attempted to deliver flowers.
The suspect was booked on $50,000 bail.
