Raleigh, N.C. — Police on Wednesday arrested a Raleigh man on a misdemeanor stalking charge after he allegedly told a girl she was pretty and then followed her on to a school bus.
An arrest warrant accuses Jermaine Lamont Johnson, 35, of 1300 Hendren Circle, of following the child for several blocks to her bus stop and then asking her what school she attends.
Johnson also faces a charge of misdemeanor trespassing/impeding a school bus, according to the warrant, after he allegedly ignored the bus driver's commands to get off the bus.
When the girl called police, the warrant says, Johnson got off the bus.
Johnson, who was jailed without bond, was also charged with violating parole.
According to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, he was convicted in 2012 on a felony larceny charge and was sentenced to a maximum of 29 months of post-release supervision.
Records show numerous convictions dating to 1996 on drug-related, trespassing, robbery and larceny charges
Johnson is scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday.
