Treasure Island police: Man stalked woman with notes, Bible verses

TREASURE ISLAND — A 45-year-old St. Petersburg man was arrested Friday on a stalking charge after he told police he's been getting "messages" pointing him to his alleged victim.

Patrick Brooks Wilson, of 6480 Central Ave., is accused of breaking into a secured parking garage on 108th Avenue on June 12 and leaving 32 pages of notes and biblical references on a woman's car, according to Treasure Island police.

The documents led police to Wilson, according to an arrest report, and his fingerprints were also found on them. Neighbors also identified Wilson as the man who had been seen outside the residence's gated entrance.

The woman does not know Wilson. His girlfriend, however, told police that Wilson said he saw the woman he is accused of targeting "in a dream."

The woman obtained a protective injunction and police requested that he be held without bond and undergo a mental health evaluation.

He was being held without bond on Saturday in the Pinellas County jail. Follow This Just In on Twitter.
