Convicted stalker charged for threatening detective
August 26, 2013, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

George Anagnostou

A San Bruno man imprisoned five years ago for stalking a female neighbor and her 14-year-old daughter began, upon his release, to threaten the investigating detective for “interfering” with the imaginary relationship he thinks exists with the teen, according to prosecutors.

George James Anagnostou, 68, is also accused of harassing the mother again, going so far as to arrive at her workplace late at night and bang on the windows while the frightened woman hid underneath her desk while awaiting police, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

In 2008, Anagnostou was convicted of stalking the woman and girl who lived on the same street and was sentenced to two years in prison. The daughter has since moved out of state.

Prosecutors say, after Anagnostou’s release, between December 2009 and July 2013, he began harassing both the woman and the San Bruno police detective who investigated the original case. He was allegedly seen looking in the detective’s windows and this summer started leaving explicit messages on his work phone threatening to get him fired and kill him for “interfering with his fantasy relationship” with the teen girl, Wagstaffe said.

Wagstaffe said another neighbor also called police to report Anagnostou outside his home screaming obscenities.

After Anagnostou allegedly went to the woman’s South San Francisco workplace and demanded entrance, Wagstaffe said police searched his home where they found cocaine, drug paraphernalia and photographs of neighborhood girls walking home.

Anagnostou was charged with four felonies including two counts of stalking — one for the investigator and the other for the mother — drug possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. At his initial arraignment, he requested a court-appointed attorney and pleaded not guilty to all charges. He did not waive his right to a speedy prosecution and returns to court Sept. 6 for a preliminary hearing.

He asked to be released on his own recognizance but Judge Richard Livermore declined and set bail at $300,000. Livermore also ordered a protective order barring Anagnostou from contact with the victims.

He remains in custody.
