Taylor Swift’s stalker is held without bail for violating protective order

January 26th, 2024

On Thursday, January 25, a man who has been harassing and following Taylor Swift was placed under arrest once more in front of the pop singer’s Tribeca apartment in Manhattan. He was then ordered to be jailed without bond.

According to the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, David Crowe, 33, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on a misdemeanor charge of second-degree criminal contempt.

Prosecutors claimed that Crowe disregarded a protection order that had been filed on Wednesday, which ordered him to avoid being near 34-year-old Swift, her house, and to stop communicating with her.

Crowe was arrested on Wednesday by officers responding to complaints of an emotionally disturbed man acting erratically near Swift’s townhouse.

He was arraigned and issued the protection order, but a short time later he was arrested again near Swift’s residence.

Court documents say an unidentified security worker had spotted Crowe near the singer’s home about 30 times since November 25. Crowe was asked about 10 times not to approach the building or to leave, according to prosecutors.

Crowe’s attorney in the public defender’s office didn’t respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment Thursday.

Crowe was charged on Wednesday with stalking in the fourth degree and harassment in the first- and second-degrees before he was released under supervision by a Manhattan judge.

But Crowe was seen diving into a large green dumpster across the pop superstar’s Tribeca home on Wednesday afternoon. He looked inside from different angles and was spotted by nearby neighbors who were left concerned at his actions before he was arrested by the New York City Police Department.

An NYPD spokesman said police officers responded to a 911 call of a disorderly male on Franklin Street at 1.35pm. Once the cops arrived, he left the location and walked into the first precinct where he was taken into custody.

‘I just saw him digging through this dumpster, taking out some blankets and then he just went and sat down on the loading dock a few doors down [from Swift’s apartment],’ a resident told The New York Post.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Crowe, from Seattle, has been spotted at Swift’s Tribeca home as many as 30 times over the last two months. He allegedly asked to speak to the singer several times.

His sweatshirt featured the quote by American author Ursula K Le Guin, which reads: ‘Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.’
