A Cupertino man is in jail after he was arrested by Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies on suspicion of stalking with intent to place a person in fear of death or safety.
Brian Monahan, 21, a student, was taken into custody at 11:05 p.m., on May 5 at a private home located at 11744 Ridge Creek Court.
He was charged with one felony related to burglary in the first degree and a felony related to stalking for willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly following or willfully and maliciously harassing another person.
The charges also say he made a credible threat with the intent to place a victim or victims in reasonable fear for their safety, or the safety of their immediate family.
If convicted of the crime of stalking, he could face inprisonment at the Santa Clara County Jail for not more than one year, or a fine of not more $1,000, or both punishments, according the California Penal Code.
He's also facing a first-degree burglary charge, but it's not clear from the sheriff's arrest report whether he's accused of trying to break into the home he was arrested at.
Monahan is in custody, according to Santa Clara County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jose Cardoza.
When asked to make public the complete crime report, Cardoza said the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office generally only releases full reports to victims or attorneys.
