A Thomasville man has been charged with aggravated stalking and burglary.
On Dec. 24, Joelenna Fahie, 29, of Thomasville reported to police that her estranged husband, Leroy Tucker, 32, had broken into her home at 604 Junius St.
The couple has a history of domestic violence and Tucker was ordered by a judge to stay away from Fahie, according to Lt. Wade Glover, Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Divisions commander.
At 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 24, Tucker forced his way into the house through the rear bedroom window. At that time, Fahie fled to a neighbor’s house in fear for her life, leaving her and Tucker’s 2-year-old and 7-year-old children. She called the police from the neighbor’s house.
Tucker took several items from the house and fled. An hour later, the police found him not too far from the property.
He has been charged with aggravated stalking and burglary.
