Woman claims man hunted her down
Woman says man
‘hunted’ her down
BENNINGTON — A Manchester man was ordered held without bail after being accused by his probation officer of stalking-like behavior two months after pleading guilty to violating an abuse prevention order against another woman.
Sean C. Campbell, 39, of Manchester, was arraigned in Bennington criminal court Monday for violating conditions of his probation. He pleaded innocent to the charge.
Campbell was placed on probation for nine to 12 months in June after pleading guilty to violation of an abuse-prevention order.
In that case, police said they were responding to a woman who had gotten an abuse-prevention order against Campbell in March. The woman said on April 7, Campbell was in his sport utility vehicle outside her workplace in Bennington.
Police said as they were putting Campbell inside a police cruiser on April 7, he said to them, “Would you guys do me a favor? Could you please give (the woman) a wedding ring and flowers I bought for her?”
In an affidavit filed Wednesday, Vermont Department of Corrections Probation Officer Gina Condo said a different woman had told her that Campbell had come uninvited to her Peru home.
The woman said in a sworn statement that Campbell had “hunted” down her new home after she ended a relationship with him.
“(He) won’t stop, won’t leave me alone. It’s creepy that he hunted me down and threatened he would come back.”
Condo said the new accusations violate Campbell’s probation conditions against engaging in threatening or harassing behavior.
