A Perry man was arrested early Tuesday after allegedly flooding a woman’s phone with calls and text messages and standing in front of her house and yelling.
Justin Scott Pierschbacher, 46, of 909 W. Second St., Perry, was charged with first-offense stalking and third-degree harassment.
The incident began about 12:15 a.m. Tuesday in the 1900 block of First Avenue, where officers of the Perry Police Department responded to a report that Pierschbacher “was in front of the home yelling,” according to court records.
Pierschbacher was gone when officers arrived on the scene.
Investigation revealed a current no-trespass order in force against Pierschbacher at the First Avenue residence. Records revealed five 911 calls for service from the residence between Sept. 18 and Sept. 21.
Investigation also revealed that Pierschbacher allegedly sent about 80 text messages to the victim between Sept. 21 at about 11:40 p.m. and Sept. 22 at about 2:40 a.m., and he allegedly called the victim’s phone about 23 times between Sept. 21 at about 9:36 a.m. and Sept. 22 at about 1:04 a.m.
The caller called back about 12:30 a.m. and said Pierschbacher had retuned.
The victim “sounded fearful and sounded as if she was crying when she called stating (Pierschbacher) was outside of the home,” according to court records.
The officers made contact with Pierschbacher and took him into custody.
Pierschbacher is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Oct. 2 in Dallas County District Court.
Pierschbacher was arrested in July on two counts of child endangerment. The case is pending in Dallas County District Court.
