Horry County police are searching for a suspect in connection with an ongoing case of stalking and harassment after a woman and her boyfriend complained that a man the woman met on Tinder won’t leave them alone.
Jordan Kelly Fleming, 32, of Conway is wanted by police, according to a release from Krystal Dotson, Horry police spokeswoman.
Police met with the woman and her boyfriend, who gave their account of the alleged harassment they’ve endured since fall of 2015. The woman told police she met Fleming on Tinder in November 2015, but told him she didn’t want to have a relationship with him, according to a police report.
The woman said Fleming began a series of unwanted calls and text messages to her and from false phone numbers, police said. She said he kept calling from false numbers when she didn’t answer and also texted photos of himself from fake phone numbers, the report states.
The woman told police Fleming began calling her family members.
Police said that in August 2016, Fleming called the woman’s employer and demanded employees tell him her address. No one told him her address, but later that month she and her boyfriend were sent a photo of her sitting in her living room, authorities said.
Fleming also sent the woman’s boyfriend unwanted text messages that made them both afraid, the report states.
The suspect was told the victims were compiling information and moving forward with prosecution, and he contacted them and said “they were falsely accusing him and said he would take legal action against them both,” according to the report.
The suspect also showed up at both of their jobs after learning the woman was compiling information and contacting law enforcement, police said.
Horry County police have a warrant for Fleming’s arrest, and anyone with information can Horry County police tip line at 843-915-8477.
Fleming contacted WMBF news Wednesday claimed he was innocent, said the warrant police had was a misunderstanding, and that while he wanted to meet with WMBF news to share his side of the story, he was advised not to by his attorney. He also told WMBF that he planned to surrender to police.
