KENOSHA — Zachariah Anderson, 39 of Mequon, was arrested for stalking on Thursday and is the focus of a case involving a missing man from Kenosha, according to Kenosha police.

Anderson was charged with stalking his ex-girlfriend, and her new boyfriend, Rosalio Gutierrez Jr. Gutierrez has been missing since Sunday, May 17.

On Tuesday, Kenosha police responded to a welfare check at Gutierrez's residence since he had not been seen or reported to work in two days.

When police arrived at Gutierrez's home they, "observed large amounts of blood in Rosalio’s apartment that appears to be fairly fresh," the criminal complaint said.

According to the report, Anderson's ex-girlfriend told police that she had been dating Gutierrez for a few months but Anderson did not approve of the relationship. Anderson and his ex-girlfriend have three children together.

According to the complaint, Anderson's ex-girlfriend told investigators that there were numerous incidences of possible stalking. She said that Anderson had given a cellphone to their daughter so she could record her mom anytime she was upset. It was also placed underneath the daughters car seat so that Anderson could track his ex-girlfriends location. What's more, the same daughter told her mom that Anderson had been secretly videotaping her and Rosalio. Anderson's ex-girlfriend said that Anderson admitted to this claim at a later date.

Anderson is a repeat offender, police say. He was convicted of having possession of more than 10 pounds of marijuana in Butte County, South Dakota on April 16. He is scheduled to be sentenced for that crime on May 27.

Gutierrez was still missing, as of Thursday evening.
