A man arrested for following women in the past was nabbed by police for allegedly stalking an 18-year-old after she left a gas station.

Gerald Dalessio, 60, of Naugatuck, was arrested Thursday on charges of breach of peace in and stalking, for an incident that took place on July 11, in which an 18-year-old woman made a complaint of a Dalessio following her, Watertown Police said.

The victim reported that while pumping gas at Shell on Straits Turnpike, Dalessio, who was unknown to her, pulled in to the gas station, stopped in front of her vehicle and gestured for her to come over to him. The victim locked herself in her vehicle and then left the station, police said.

Dalessio never exited his vehicle for gas but followed the victim out onto Straits Turnpike into Middlebury. The victim reported that Dalessio followed her on I-84 for about five minutes when she lost sight of him.

The woman later identified Dalessio from published arrests for similar incidents in Wolcott and Waterbury, police said.

Dalessio was held on a $25,000 bond.
