Ohio Man Remains in Jail After Allegedly Stalking OU Soccer Player
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - An Ohio man remains jailed on $2 million bond after prosecutors accused him of threatening to kill a University of Oklahoma soccer player.
Naasik Ferdous of Batavia, Ohio, is charged with stalking and conspiring to perform an act of violence. Prosecutors claim that Ferdous admitted driving more than 900 miles from Cincinnati to the Norman campus with the intent of killing OU goalie Kelsey Devonshire.
An affidavit alleges that Ferdous called University of Oklahoma police to tell them that he was en route and planned to "come after" Devonshire.
Devonshire, who was not harmed, obtained a protection order last week against Ferdous. The affidavit says Ferdous blamed Devonshire for his expulsion from OU.
Court records do not list an attorney for Ferdous. He's due in court Oct. 30.Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
