LOGAN – A 22-year-old Logan man has been arrested on suspicion of stalking and attempting to evade police. Samuel Pond was arrested Dec. 1 and is being held in the Cache County Jail.

According to Logan City Police Capt. Jeff Curtis, Pond had been stalking his 24-year-old victim for months and had received various warnings from the girl and police. “He was doing things that are a little out of the ordinary for someone who doesn’t know a person that well,” Curtis said.

He said Pond was trying to meet and go on dates with the girl and was calling her at all times of the day and night. Curtis also said Pond had been showing up at her workplace and home to try and talk to her. “He was telling her he wanted to marry her,” Curtis said.

Pond was arrested after being released from the hospital after treatment for injuries sustained during a police chase in which he rammed a police car two times in efforts to escape, Curtis said.
