It happened in a neighborhood off South Boulevard about 10:00 pm.
Officers searched for Stanton but were not able to locate him.
Police searched the area for Stanton and found several boards that had been wedged between a wall and the back door of the residence as if to keep anyone from opening the door from inside the home.
Residents were instructed by the Neighborhood Police Officer to call him or 911 if there was any further contact by Stanton or any other suspicious activity while he and other officers conducted further searches.
At 11:25 that night, residents called the officer and told him Stanton had reached out to the woman, making statements that he could see the residence. When driving to the residence, officers were told Stanton was knocking on the door, and that the woman feared for her life and the safety of her children.
