A man from Naperville's far southwest side is free on bond and awaiting trial on charges of stalking his former girlfriend.
Michael J. Lamb, 25, is scheduled to appear June 12 in DuPageCounty Circuit Court in Wheaton, to answer misdemeanor charges of attempted cyberstalking and electronic harassment, according to court records.
Naperville police arrested Lamb about 8:02 p.m. May 8 at his home on the 2500 block of Durango Lane, in the Glenmuir area of the city.
Police began investigating him on March 12, after being contacted by a 23-year-old Aurora woman who claimed "she was being harassed and stalked" by Lamb after she ended their relationship last summer, police Sgt. Bill Davis said.
Lamb on New Year's Day allegedly "sent the victim some harassing text messages, threatening to damage her car," Davis wrote in a Friday email. Lamb on Jan. 15 allegedly followed the woman to an unidentified Naperville restaurant "and sent her more harassing text messages, which caused emotional stress" for her, Davis said.
"The victim (continued being) harassed via texting" following those incidents, Davis said. That led to a warrant being issued and Lamb's subsequent arrest, he said.
Davis added detailed police reports concerning the case were still being compiled on Friday.
Court records indicated Lamb has no criminal record in DuPage, Kane and Will counties.
