A 71-year-old Ellendale man was arrested on harassment charges after he allegedly called a woman multiple times to ask for sex.
The Harrington Police Department arrested 71-year-old Arthur C. King on March 15 after police had obtained a warrant for his arrest following a harassment complaint.
Patrol officers originally responded to a residence in the 1500 block of Madison Avenue where they contacted an adult female victim and determined that King had called the victim several times asking for sex, said Harrington Police Department spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
The victim told King to stop calling, but King continued to call the victim, Brode said.
After police obtained a warrant for his arrest, Delaware State Police took King into custody at his Ellendale residence.
King was turned over to the Harrington Police Department, where he was charged with one count of harassment.
King was arraigned and released on a $500 unsecured bond.
