Evansville man charged with stalking his neighbor's son

Posted: Updated:

An Evansville man was arrested for stalking following an investigation by the Evansville Police Department.

EPD says 64-year-old David Painter was arrested on a felony warrant Thursday night.

Police believe Painter had an ongoing dispute that led to him harassing his neighbors, his neighbor's visitors, and eventually his neighbor's children.

Officials say the 12-year-old victim told officers that Painter, who is 6' and 250 pounds, had followed him home from school several times and would yell obscenities at him. The victim was able to capture at least one of the incidents on video with his cell phone.

Painter was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail, but has since bonded out.
