A man who was arrested three years ago and put on trial for stalking a woman from Naperville — only to later be declared not guilty by reason of insanity in that case — has been charged with stalking her again.
Fouzan A. Quaiser is a recent student of Benedictine University in Lisle. The 28-year-old Roselle man has a criminal record that includes convictions for domestic violence, battery and drug possession, according to court documents.
Written Naperville police reports indicated Quaiser was arrested about 6:29 p.m. Wednesday, at or near the woman’s home in the Preserves of Naperville area of the city’s far southwest side. Bail was set Thursday at $50,000 for Quaiser, who faces trial in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet on two felony counts of cyberstalking, court records showed.
Additionally, the 24-year-old woman Quaiser is accused of stalking on Thursday sought a court order of protection against him, as she had done in 2011, according to records.
Police Sgt. Bill Davis on Friday said he could not provide many details of Quaiser’s most recent arrest, “as all (the police) reports are not complete.”
Davis said he could confirm Quaiser “was a college acquaintance” of the alleged victim, who on March 22 reported him to police. The cyberstalkings with which Quaiser is charged allegedly occurred on April 12 and April 16, Will County court records indicated.
The woman told investigators Quaiser was “harassing her online by posting personal information about her through a social media website,” Davis wrote in an email.. He did not identify the website or say what the alleged harassment entailed.
Quaiser’s history with the woman dates back to at least April 5, 2011, when he was first arrested by Naperville police and charged with stalking her.
Court records showed while the woman obtained an order of protection against Quaiser in that case, he was arrested on July 16, 2011, and charged with violating that order. That earned him a second felony charge.
Quaiser on Sept. 21, 2011 was found mentally unfit to stand trial for either crime, according to records. After being remanded into the custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services for treatment, he was found mentally fit to stand trial on Jan. 10, 2012, provided he took prescribed medication, records indicated.
A “stipulated” bench trial was conducted on April 3, 2012. The next day, the judge who had been assigned the case found Quaiser not guilty of both crimes by reason of insanity, records showed.
Quaiser, following his acquittal, was put back in the custody of the department of human resources. It could not be immediately learned when, or if, he was discharged from that agency’s care.
DuPage County court records indicated Quaiser has been jailed three times. He was sentenced in May 2009 to 76 days in jail, after being convicted of interfering with a report of domestic violence and resisting or obstructing police in Roselle, records showed.
Quaiser was sentenced in July 2011 to 75 days in jail, after being found guilty of domestic battery and resisting police in Roselle, and on a separate charge of domestic battery in Bloomingdale, according to records. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail in March 2012, after being convicted of charges of possession of drug paraphernalia in Glendale Heights and attempted possession of marijuana in Naperville, records indicated.
An online news release from Benedictine University stated Quaiser was named to the “Fall 2013 Dean’s Recognized List.” It salutes part-time students who maintained a minimum 3.5 grade point average during that period.
Quaiser’s arraignment is scheduled for May 22 in the cyberstalking cases. He remained Friday in Will County Jail.
