Man charged with stalking ex-wife — a police sergeant

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Far South Side man was ordered held in lieu of $300,000 bail Thursday for allegedly stalking his ex-wife, a Chicago Police sergeant, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Eric Terry, 39, slashed his ex-wife’s friends’ car tires and harassed her while she was at her home with her two children this summer, Cook County prosecutors said.

Terry’s ex-wife has an active order of protection against him. The couple divorced in September 2013, Assistant State’s Attorney Erin Antonietti said.

Terry was acquitted in April on similar charges involving the same victim, authorities said.

When he was arrested on Tuesday, Terry, allegedly said, “This s--- better not be about that bitch.”

Terry, of the 1200 block of West 122th Place, was charged with aggravated stalking and criminal damage to property after a series of events he was suspected to be involved in, prosecutors said.

At least twice, in May and June, a friend noticed that her car tires had been slashed after leaving the officer’s house, in the 8200 block of South Whipple Street, Antonietti said.

Terry allegedly slashed the tires of the victim’s other friend in mid July. A neighbor of that friend had seen Terry in the area before the friend’s car was vandalized in the 7900 block of South California Avenue, Antonietti said.

A few days before on July 9, the victim and a friend were sitting on her porch when a glass bottle was thrown at them and smashed on the ground, Antonietti said.

The victim also allegedly received a phone call from a man she recognized as Terry, telling her, “You know you’re dead bitch, wait ‘til I catch your ass.”

Terry also was caught on the victim’s home surveillance camera breaking the lens with a hammer on July 23, Antonietti said.

The surveillance camera picked up Terry driving his Maroon Monte Carlo in his ex-wife’s neighborhood three to four times this month, Antonietti said.

Terry, a father of three, has a master’s degree in public administration, an assistant public defender said.

He is next scheduled to appear in court August 5, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.
