HOWELL, N.J. (CBS) – Police in Monmouth County say they have arrested a man who allegedly stalked multiple women while they were out shopping and then followed them home with the intention of robbing them.
“When the woman left the store, Reyes followed her to her car. When she left the parking lot in her vehicle, Reyes followed in his vehicle, described as a black van, possibly a Honda Odyssey,” said police in a news release.
“When she pulled over to see what the vehicle would do next, the vehicle also pulled over and shut the lights off. The van followed the woman back near her home prompting her to call her father. The woman’s father attempted to confront [Reyes] in the street but he sped off,” police said.
“She noticed a suspicious black van parked in front of her neighbor’s home and alerted her neighbors. Moments later, the van left. The woman knew it was suspicious and checked her home’s surveillance footage which showed the black minivan followed her into the neighborhood,” said investigators.
