SOUTHINGTON — A Watertown man faces stalking, harassment and threatening charges following two separate incidents this month.
Joshoel Mullen, 33, of 198 Echo Lake Road, Watertown, was charged with second-degree threatening and violation of a standing criminal protective order in an incident that occurred Sunday. He was also charged with second-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and violation of a standing criminal protective order in an incident that occurred on Nov. 1.
Mullen turned himself in Sunday night after learning of a warrant for his arrest. He was released after posting $20,000 bond.
On Nov. 1, a person reported receiving numerous harassing and threatening phone calls and texts, police spokesman Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz said in a statement. The complainant also reported receiving a text indicating Mullen was stalking the complainant. The alleged harassment, phone calls and texts violated the conditions of a standing criminal protective order.
On Sunday, Mullen reportedly threatened to kill the complainant in a phone call with the complainant’s mother, which also violated the protective order, Dobratz said.
