Racine, 29, accused of harassing a teenager | Crime and courts


RACINE – A man from Racine has been accused of harassing and threatening a teenager.

Demetri D. Shaw, 29, of 1000 Block Main Street, has been charged with one count of criminal harassment and one count of disorderly conduct.

According to a criminal complaint:

At 7:50 p.m. Thursday, an officer was dispatched to the 5200 block of Maryland Avenue with a report of annoying phone calls.

The officer made contact with a teenage girl who said she met Shaw about six months ago and when he started making sexual advances at her she rejected him. She blocked his number and deleted his social media pages in an attempt to cut off communication with him.

She changed her number, but on December 18 she started receiving phone calls from him again. When she again refused his sexual advances, she said he threatened her with a gun.

She said she learned from friends that Shaw and her brother had driven into town looking for her.

Later that evening, an officer contacted Shaw. The agent reported that Shaw said he called her that night but would not call her again.

He claimed the teenager harassed and called him all day and received messages from other men saying they were going to kill him.

Shaw was given a $ 10,000 cash bond on Monday in Racine County Circuit Court. A preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 5 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., according to court records online.
