STUART, Fla. - Officers with the Stuart Police Department said they've started stepping up patrols at local hotels and motels Wednesday, watching for something they don't usually see: stalking.
A woman afraid she was being stalked in the Clarion Inn parking lot at 1200 S. Federal Highway called SPD Wednesday afternoon.
Blurry security images of a man are now the focus of a city-wide investigation.
"We hope it doesn't happen again," said Stuart Police Sgt. Derek Ortado.
"We've been having extra patrols in all the hotel parking lots and especially the one where the incident took place," Sgt. Ortado said.
Officers want everyone to be extra cautious right now and report anything suspicious to police. The number to call in Stuart is 772-287-1122.
