A man with an alleged history of threatening behavior toward his family spent consecutive days following his ex-wife and daughter to locations where they frequent, including their home, said police in Fairfield County.
David Kamara, 46, of Rosedale in Queens, was arrested on Wednesday, July 24, on a warrant by the Trumbull Police after he was located at a Stratford gas station, said Trumbull Police Lt. Brian Weir.
The series of stalking events began around 6:42 p.m., on Monday, July 22, when police were dispatched to a suspicious person complaint involving Kamara, who was parked near his ex-wife’s residence near Madison Avenue, said Weir.
When speaking to police, Kamara said he did not know anyone in Trumbull, and that he was “sight-seeing.”
Earlier, on Sunday, July 21, Kamara was reported to have been at a Trumbull gas station where he was waiting in the parking lot for an extended period of time. Trumbull Police was notified and spoke with Kamara who said that he purchased gas, and was going to meet friends in Monroe, Wier said.
Later that night, Kamara was parked in the area of his ex-wife and daughter’s house when he was approached by a concerned citizen. During that encounter, Kamara was “staring off and deeply focused on something else.” He left the area prior to police arriving, police said.
A police investigation revealed a history of threatening by Kamara towards his family, and based on his recent activity an arrest warrant application was submitted and approved by the court.
Kamara was charged with two counts of stalking and held on a $30,000 bond.
