A Burnt Hills man was arrested Monday morning on multiple charges for allegedly stalking a 15-year-old female for the past two years.
Michael McGuire, 52, was picked up by Schenectady Police, state police and the U.S. Marshals Task Force at his home at Scotch Bush Road in connection with a sealed indictment.
Schenectady police spokesman Lt. Mark McCracken said the victim was a family friend. “He became a little obsessed with her and started acting in an inappropriate manner,” he said.
McGuire had been arrested before and an order of protection had been issued by the court barring McGuire from contact with the woman, but he kept violating it, according to McCracken.
McGuire was brought before a Schenectady County Judge and arraigned on 18 counts of second-degree criminal contempt, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of second-degree aggravated harassment and two counts of fourth-degree stalking, all misdemeanors. He was also charged with a violation of stalking.
Police are not releasing the identity of the victim because of her age.
McGuire is also facing charges from a Sept. 12 incident when he allegedly attempted to strike two Schenectady Police Officers with a beer bottle during a disturbance at the Ancient Order of the Hibernians at 1748 State St., where he was following the victim from the previous set of charges, in violation of an order of protection.
He was charged with one count of attempted second-degree assault, a Class D felony and one count of resisting arrest.
