According to Harris County court records, Anderson, 24, was arrested on Friday and is scheduled to appear for Wednesday.
According to a police report obtained by the Daily News on Tuesday, his ex-girlfriend told police that she arrived home at around 7 a.m. Friday after drinking coffee and that Anderson’s car was parked outside his garage. She told police that Anderson saw her but she continued driving, at which point he followed her.
According to the arrest affidavit, when the woman thought she had lost Anderson, she returned home, but he met her at her townhome and pushed her down the stairs, then followed her to the second floor.
