(HOUSTON) — Authorities are in pursuit of a man accused of stalking a Houston local television news anchor and traffic reporter, who now “is in fear of her life,” the Houston Chronicle reported.

Investigators, according to the paper, said Christopher Marcus Olson, 38, has been hounding KPRC-TV’s Jennifer Reyna since Sept. 14, despite a no-contact order issued by a state district judge in May 2007 after Olson twice crashed his car through the front door of the local news station.

Police have recorded five separate incidents since September in which Olson has followed Reyna from work, waited in an adjacent parking lot for her to arrive at work, and contacted her by phone, bypassing the screening technology she has in place.

KPRC-TV’s senior executive producer, Rick McFarland, told ABC News that he was unable to comment on the case.  He also said Reyna had chosen not to comment.

Olson was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief following the second station crash in May 2007.  He was also arrested in February 2010 for ignoring the no-contact order, and was released on bond in March 2011, the Houston Chronicle reported.

An arrest warrant for Olson was filed on Dec. 27 with the Harris County District Clerk.  His bond was set at $80,000, according to the Harris County District Clerk’s Office.

Anyone with information about Olson is asked to contact the Houston police at 713-308-3280.
