Havertown man accused of stalking CBS3 anchor

Posted: November 18, 2011

A Delaware County man arrested this week is accused of stalking CBS3 anchor Erika von Tiehl, police sources said Thursday.

John Hart, 35, of Havertown, was charged Wednesday with identity theft, harassment, and related offenses. Police did not identify the victim, but sources confirmed it was von Tiehl.

"This is a personal matter that is now being handled by the appropriate law enforcement agencies," CBS3 said in a statement. "We have no further comment, but, of course, Erika has our support through this process."

Hart has been arrested in connection with stalking at least two women, according to court records. He was arrested four times in less than a month in 2002 after police said he stalked a former girlfriend. Three weeks later, he was charged with harassing another woman, records show. - Allison Steele
