STALKING - MASSENA - Village police charged Matthew J. Green, 26, of 553 County Route 37, Massena, with fourth-degree stalking and second-degree harassment at 11:05 p.m. Monday stemming from an investigation into an incident reported on May 12 with a female he is reportedly involved with in an on again, off again relationship.
He reportedly sent Samantha Heald several text messages inquiring about her whereabouts and then becoming increasingly upset when he learned she was hanging out with friends, involving some males.
She said during the course of the early morning hours Green was in a vehicle being driven by Bob Goodreau that followed her vehicle into the Sunoco Mini Mart station. She told police Goodreau pulled his vehicle up behind her, blocking her in the parking lot. She said Green exited the vehicle and started yelling at he. She said she got out of her vehicle and told Green she didnt want to talk to him and wanted him to leave her alone. She said she then got back in her vehicle, locked the door as Green attempted to open it and slowly pulled out of her parking spot.
She said Goodreau and Green slowly drove past her vehicle a short time later when she was at Walmart with two friends. She said Green also continued to text her, and she sent a text back telling him to leave her alone and stop following her. She said later in the evening the trio went to Willy Rocheforts home on Stoughton Avenue and while there Goodreau and Green reportedly pulled in front of that residence and blew the vehicles horn before squealing the tires and leaving. Soon after, I got a text message from Matt telling me that he knew I was at Willys and told me that I needed to leave. I then told Matt again to leave me alone and stop stalking and texting me. Matt then said that he was going to go to jail and that he was leaving but would be back with something, Ms. Heald noted in her statement to police.
