NEWPORT-A Newport woman said a man she was initially friends with on Facebook has managed to find out where she lives and followed her around, the Cocke County Sheriff's Office reported.

Penny Valentine, 42, of Branch Drive, in Newport, said in June or July, she started out as friends with the offender on Facebook, Deputy Sheriff Michael Whitmer reported.

She said he began "getting too personal", so she cut her ties with him, the report stated.

Somehow the man got her phone number and began texting and calling her, Whitmer stated in his report.
