“On 04-15-2020 at around 2:00 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a violation of a domestic violence protective order in the 18000 block of North Highway 1, in Fort Bragg, California.
Deputies responded and contacted an adult female who is the protected person on the court order.
Deputies learned Kristofer Anderson was the restrained person on the court order and obtained evidence that Anderson had violated the restraining order multiple times by telephone, since being served with the order on 04-11-2020.
After being served with the order, Anderson contacted the adult female in person, at her place of employment and made threats toward her. Deputies determined Anderson had engaged in a course of conduct that terrorized the adult female and caused her to be in fear for her life.
Deputies quickly located Anderson about a mile away in the 18000 block of George’s Lane.
Deputies determined that probable cause existed to arrest Anderson for 646.9 PC [Stalking in Violation of a Protective Order] and 273.6 PC [Violation of a Domestic Violence Protective Order].
Deputies arrested Anderson and he was booked into the Mendocino County Jail to be held in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.”
