Highland police say an Alton man stalked a co-worker, stole her underwear and hid in her basement. 31-year-old Annan Gross of the 2,300 block of Wyckoff Street allegedly went to the 20-year-old woman’s home in Highland earlier this month, broke in, and was in the process of taking her things when the woman came home.
She fled to a neighbor’s house and called police. When police arrived, they say they found Gross in the basement, and after searching his car allegedly discovered several pairs of women’s underwear, hair and feminine products in plastic bags labeled with feminine names. Police say these women all live in Idaho, and have been identified. Gross is being held without bond in the Madison County Jail on charges of Residential Burglary and Stalking.
