Calhoun County deputies Wednesday were investigating a report of stalking from a Jacksonville woman who said she received several threatening text messages and had a man she didn’t know pull into her driveway Friday.

According to a police report, the incident took place from 4:37 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The 40-year-old had been at her home on the 900 block of Angel Drive South when she received threatening text messages from various phone numbers, deputies reported.

According to Lt. Jon Garlick, the messages told the victim that the suspect knew where she was and that she was being watched.

The victim’s 44-year-old boyfriend, who was not with the victim at the time, said he also received several threatening messages regarding the victim, Garlick said.

According to Garlick, around 5 p.m., a white four-door truck pulled into the victim’s driveway. The victim’s neighbor confronted the driver when he did not leave the car, the lieutenant said, and the driver told the neighbor he was checking on their cable lines.

Garlick said that after the confrontation, the man in the truck drove away.

Deputies were working to develop a suspect Wednesday, Garlick said, adding that a name had been discovered in some of the text messages.

Any suspect could face a charge of stalking, a felony, according to a police report.
