Austintown Police charge Alliance man with stalking, obscenity involving minor
An Alliance, Ohio man is in the Mahoning County jail after police say he stalked an Austintown woman that he met at a Rootstown bar.
Police say they posted an officer outside a Township home on March 26 after a woman who lives there told them that Neil Toalston threatened to come to the home where she and her children live.
The woman said she met Toalston at the Dusty Armadillo and they had gone out together previously.
After learning that Toalston told someone that they were engaged, the woman said she told him that she just wanted to remain friends.
When Toalston continued sending messages to the woman, she blocked his calls and texts.
According to the police report, Toalston began leaving voice mails and texts for her child's biological father, as well as commenting on Facebook that the woman had blocked his texts and calls.
An officer told Toalston to end all communications with the woman and her family.
On Monday, police issued a warrant for Toalston’s arrest, charging him with telecommunications harassment, menacing by stalking, and two counts of pandering obscenity involving a minor.
The police report does not explain why the obscenity charges were filed.
Toalston is scheduled to appear in court on Monday to answer the charges.
