A Moritz Place man, who has been banned from TD Bank on Black Rock Turnpike, turned himself in at police headquarters Tuesday morning to face stalking charges.
Peter F. DeGregorio, 56, was charged with two counts of second-degree stalking, and bond was set at $50,000.
During an investigation into complaints against DeGregorio from two women who work at the bank, police said they discovered that DeGregorio had gathered personal information on them "beyond what a casual observer would have obtained." According to the report, DeGregorio had collected information about their cars, their families, their dates of birth and driver's license numbers, as well as the home address of one of the women.
They said he also obtained a temporary restraining order against the two employees by falsely claiming that he had lived with each one of them.
The employees said they never had any kind of relationship with DeGregorio and felt they had been targeted by him.
In August, DeGregorio was arrested and charged with breach of peace after an incident with a TD Bank employee in the parking lot of a nearby deli. He allegedly began yelling and cursing at her, and then blocked her car with his, yelling at her again and giving her an obscene gesture before driving away.
Police went to his home at that time, and were prepared to issue him a misdemeanor summons. However, he allegedly said, "No, take me in, I want to be arrested." When officers tried to handcuff him, he resisted arrest and continued to call the bank employee names, according to the report.
