A Clarence man has been charged with menacing and stalking a former girlfriend, state police announced Thursday.

Scott I. Blair, 29, was arrested Saturday on Cloverleaf Drive in Clarence and charged with aggravated harassment and stalking. Troopers said he recently attempted to place 60 phone and text messages to the woman, despite being warned to stay away from her.

His arrest Saturday occurred after he followed the woman throughout the day, said troopers, who added that Blair had been charged previously with aggravated harassment, a case linked to the same woman.

Another court order of protection also was issued, authorities said.
