Man Charged With Stalking

Pike County, KY — An Elkhorn City man has been arrested on stalking charges. According to the arrest citation, Kentucky State Police at the Pikeville Post received a call from around 8:00 AM Thursday from a female who stated 42-year-old Steven Slone of Biggs Branch was following her and making threats toward her. A Kentucky State Police CVE Officer found both the woman and Slone at the Marrowbone BP station. Slone and the woman were told to go their separate ways. Slone instead followed the woman to Millard School where she locked herself in her vehicle and called Kentucky State Police again. The same KSP CVE Officer responded. Slone explained that he thought it was a misunderstanding and thought he could meet and try to talk to the woman. This time, Slone was told not to be around the woman by her request. The female then obtained an Emergency Protective Order (EPO) against Slone. Shortly before 1:00 PM the same day, the female called Kentucky State Police again stating Slone was sitting outside her place of employment in Coal Run Village. The Trooper wrote in the citation that Slone told him that he was going to talk with the female no matter what. Slone was then arrested and lodged in the Pike County Detention Center charged with Stalking 2nd Degree.
