OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – Authorities say a man violated a no-contact order and eventually rummaged through a woman’s belongings and stole a $100, a lottery ticket and a phone.
Patrick O’Connell, 26, is being held in the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center on felony charges for terroristic threats causing terror with reckless disregard and domestic assault.
He is also facing misdemeanor charges for violating a no-contact order and obstructing legal process while interfering with police.
Authorities said a 26-year-old female said she received repeated electronic communication from O’Connell and was tired of hearing from him so she decided to meet him in person in the 7400 block of County Rd. 20 SE.
Authorities say O’Connell was mad that she was possibly spending time with someone else and then he went through her things after she exited the vehicle.
After the woman reported what had happened, O’Connell allegedly told the woman he was going to her house but was stopped by officers in the northeast part of Stewartville.
