Police have not released the woman’s name.
The man arrested by police earlier this month was ordered to stand trial for arson, aggravated assault, domestic violence and home invasion, Wayne County prosecutors said Thursday. His ex-girlfriend was the victim in those cases.
He had been released on a $ 7,500 personal bail and ordered not to have contact with the victim.
On November 12, the officer in charge of the case told an assistant prosecutor that the victim had several doorbell videos of a man in her yard, and in one of these cases, a GPS tracker was placed on her car, prosecutors say.
The man’s face was hidden by a hood, but the victim thought it was her ex-boyfriend, the prosecution said.
The prosecution on Thursday filed a motion for a judge to keep the man in police custody until his bond on the previous charges can be processed.
