MNPD Officer Jonathan Perez has been charged with stalking a coworker. He’d previously been romantically involved with that coworker, but after they’d parted ways, he kept contacting her — even though she’d asked him repeatedly to stop. Even Perez’s supervisor told him to quit the stalking.
Perez, who’s been with MNPD for 5 years, is now on desk duty and was arrested this morning. The police department is conducting its own internal investigation as well.
