A Gainesville man was arrested on a cyberstalking charge on allegations he sent his former girlfriend more than 200 messages through various means, according to an arrest report.

Raymond Robert Fenn, 35, of 1226 NW 55th Terrace, and the woman dated from January to September, when she broke it off, according to an Alachua County Sheriff’s Office report. She sent Fenn a text message indicating she was ending the relationship and did not want any further contact with him.

During the following 10 hours he sent her 37 texts, ASO reported. Since then, he sent her five letters that he left on her car or at her workplace, sent 189 texts to her cellphone, left her 96 emails, sent her 60 messages through her Facebook and left 87 messages on her cellphone voicemail, officials said.

In various messages, Fenn said he was “severely traumatized” by the breakup and that he had to see a therapist to get stabilized.

Under questioning by authorities, Fenn admitted to receiving the text from the woman and to sending her the messages. The report states he told authorities he didn’t understand why the woman ended the relationship and needed closure.
