Nevada man accused of stalking, threatening Utah family for years arrested
(KUTV) — On Friday, law enforcement in Nevada arrested a man a Utah family says was traveling across the border for years specifically to torment them.
Casey Keegan told 2News Daman Holmes used to date one of her daughters. Holmes was physically and emotionally abusive, and continued to torture Keegan's daughter and their entire family after the breakup, Keegan said.
Holmes tormented the family by vandalizing their home and posting videos of himself abusing animals and verbally threatening Keegan's daughters.
Police were aware of Holmes, but had not been able to arrest him because he lived in Nevada. Keegan said he would travel to Utah to stalk the family and vandalize their home, then escape back over the border.
Keegan told 2News authorities in Nevada were also aware of Holmes, which was confirmed by 2News sister station KSNV in Las Vegas.
A police task force arrested Holmes in Boulder, Nevada on Friday morning.
Holmes was jailed on suspicion of aggravated stalking and felony animal abuse. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and held on a $25,000 bond.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Clark County Justice Court on Monday.
