It has been reported that Serena Williams’ stalker has been arrested in Florida. Patenema Ouedraogo, 40, was arrested near Williams’ home in Palm Beach Gardens and charged with stalking and cyber-stalking.
Williams’ attorney said a restraining order had been sought against Ouedraogo, but he could not be found so it was never served.
Ouedraogo had reportedly tried to approach Williams four times since October, including on April 15 when he showed up to a radio station in Hollywood, Florida where she was appearing.
Ouedraogo’s bond has been set at $25,000 and a judge ordered him to stay at least 500 feet (152 metres) away from Williams.
