A Nashville woman says 55-year-old Jesus Castro has stalked her and other women in a local neighborhood. She was walking her dog on January 2 when a silver Nissan Altima drove past her and pulled to the side of the road ahead of her. As she walked past the vehicle, Castro noticed the dog with her. Another woman suddenly appeared and began to bang on the window of the vehicle stating she had seen him following other women and that police were being contacted. Castro drove away. The other woman stated Castro had been driving around the neighborhood “cat-calling” women, mostly in Spanish.
Officers contacted the man at his house, and he initially denied ever being in that area until he was shown photographs of him that multiple women had posted online. He then apologized for his behavior and stated he wouldn’t do it again. Later that evening, he was captured on video returning to the area and cat-calling women. His behavior continued for the next two weeks, during which time multiple women continued to document his behavior as they felt they were getting no assistance from the police. Officers observed him parked on Lischey Ave on January 16 as he was honking at one of the same women as she walked by. As she walked around the block, Castro continued to drive past her and make gestures and statements.
Officers also documented another incident that occurred while she was on the phone with the police. After the police continued to be of no assistance, one of the women sought a private prosecution warrant with the night court magistrate, and Castro was charged with stalking.
