A 29-year-old former surgeon in training at the Medical University of South Carolina has been captured in West Ashley by local authorities in connection with stalking an 18-year-old girl.

Karl Leonard Ehrens, 29, was wanted on first-degree harassment charges after leaving boxes full of stuffed animals and paperwork indicating that he had passed a polygraph test at his victim's new residence. The girl had already filed a restraining order against Ehrens, as well as numerous reports of his stalking behavior.

According to The Post and Courier's report, the two had simply met during a chance encounter which makes the entire case 10 times creepier.
