Councilwoman felt threatened by female stalker


I’m working on this story for tomorrow:

WEST COVINA — A city councilwoman expressed concerns for her life when she filed a restraining order against a Lake Elsinore woman last month.

West Covina City Councilwoman Shelley Sanderson said a series of harassing phone calls on Jan. 3 prompted her to file a police report against Charlynda Lamb.

“There are still violations that have occurred since the restraining order was issued,” Sanderson said. “It is still under investigation by the police department.”

Sanderson said that she met Lamb, 32, once, but could not remember when. She also does not know why she was the target of Lamb’s “annoying phone calls,” which occurred on one day.

“She actually stated that. ‘I was coming to get you,’ ” Sanderson said.
