Man charged with stalking girlfriend’s husband
January 14, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Andrew Rustad

A 37-year-old man who prosecutors say called his girlfriend’s husband dozens of times with threats of harm and eventually went to the couple’s Half Moon Bay home to “have it out” last week was charged with stalking.

Andrew Hopkins Rustad is also charged with making criminal threats and annoying phone calls to the woman’s husband between Jan. 8 and 9. Rustad reportedly began a romantic relationship last summer with his alleged victim’s wife. In December, she left her husband to move in with Rustad but asked to come back on Jan. 8 because she said he was verbally abusive, according to prosecutors.

Throughout the night of Jan. 8, Rustad allegedly called 68 times and left 24 messages of escalating threats such as being outside the home “waiting to get him.” Sheriff’s deputies could not locate Rustad but were called to the couple’s gated community early the next morning because he was there to see the husband. Deputies arrested Rustad and reported him saying he was there “to have it out with the victim,” said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Rustad pleaded not guilty to all charges and a preliminary hearing was calendared for Jan. 23. A judge denied his request for release on his own recognizance and set bail at $250,000 which he posted.
