A man has been arrested in Southern California for allegedly stalking an ex-girlfriend, sending her 4,000 texts and breaking into her social media accounts after she ended the relationship, according to local police.

Raul Plancarte-Hernandez, 33, and the woman -- who was not named by police -- briefly dated in 2016, and after she broke up with him, she started getting phone calls and texts from him at all hours of the day and night, according to a news release from the Thousand Oaks Police Department.

She blocked his number, but Plancarte-Hernandez allegedly used phone apps to call and text her from different numbers, police said.

Plancarte-Hernandez allegedly called her about 300 times and texted her about 4,000 times in the last year and a half since their break up, police said.

He also allegedly hacked into her social media accounts, Pay-Pal account, iCloud account, and phone account to make changes to them, according to police.

"The victim, in an attempt to stop Plancarte-Hernandez, changed her cell phone number, email address, Apple ID and all electronic means of identifying herself," police said.

However, "Plancarte-Hernandez was still able to contact her via cell phone and email," police added.

The victim also moved from Moorpark, California, to nearby Thousand Oaks to try to avoid him, police said, but Plancarte-Hernandez found her.

"Plancarte-Hernandez sent threatening text messages to the victim that included current events in the victims’ life that Plancarte-Hernandez could have only known if he was nearby and watching the victim," according to police.

On June 7, detectives found Plancarte-Hernandez sitting in a parked car with sunshades in the windows directly in front of the victim's home, police said.

"Plancarte-Hernandez was actively stalking the victim and sending her unwanted text messages," police said.

Plancarte-Hernandez was charged with stalking, police said.

On June 12, Plancarte-Hernandez was arraigned in Ventura County Superior Court on the stalking charge.

He has entered a plea of not guilty and remains in custody.

His public defender did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

    No one is worth this much trouble. If you are interested in someone and they turn you down/end it, go get drunk and get over it.

    It is not gonna happen. No one say's you can't be sad/upset, but you gotta accept it.

  • Linzie Rogers

    What's so hard about accepting the fact someone doesn't want you? There are literally millions of others of the opposite sex from which to choose. Such people have problems that don't respond to normal solutions.

  • Personal

    A plea of not guilty? I wouldn’t want to be his lawyer.

  • Jenna

    This is EXACTLY the sort of fella who will go on a killing spree if he's not stopped. We need to start taking this kind of thing SERIOUSLY instead of blowing it off as some kind of eccentric courtship. He needs to be put in a mental hospital for a few years until they can figure out what's wrong with his mind and how to fix it. Sane people don't act like this.

  • DWileyOne

    Yuk it up guys. This woman is in danger from this psycho. I truly hope that your mother or sister or daughter never have to experience this fear.

  • helicohunter

    When he gets out of prison, maybe he should become a private investigator.

  • Marc

    That's standard behavior for my ex-girlfriends

  • Independent

    Sadly the NRA has made it so this guy can still buy a weapon.

  • Stopbanningme

    They're reporting this like it's unusual behavior.

  • Abraham Lampoon

    No woman can be THAT good looking. :)

    Another fine upstanding Californicator whose citizenship will never be questioned or revealed by the State of Californication!

  • DK1

    Wow, that's one pathetic man.

  • ToothyGrinn

    I'd say he's a little obsessed.

  • AwfHand

    "Every breath you take... I'll be watching you"
    Not sure that's going to win her back.

  • sadie220

    Oh this is nothing, the bartender who was trying to hook up with my husband was blocked from 10 different numbers and several phone apps. Thousands of text and phone calls later the police stopped her.

  • StrontiDog

    Apparently, persistence has its limits. Hopefully, he gets the message. . .or finds a 'girlfriend' in jail.

  • mrshvd3

    And I'll bet he STILL can't figure out why she doesn't want him.

  • Brooks Payne

    Many males are dangerous emotional wreck-control freaks.
    Too often males threaten and even maim or kill women who don't want them.
    Yet in stories like these, some guys just have to step up and say 'women do this too!' Check the stats. Males abuse and/or murder females waaay more often.

    Loser Raul can’t find another girlfriend??????

  • Rodney Bayburn

    These sad losers are a danger to society and eventually end up killing or hurting someone. Lock him up and throw away the key.

  • carrollfamily

    This guy obviously has no self-control and is a serious danger.

  • William Bahr

    I was stalked by a woman in 1974 when I was 18. She was crazy as a lune! She was also very good looking. Based on that the local PD treated it as a joke. I volunteered for the local ambulance service. One night I was there at 2 am on duty she showed up with a knife. When the officers showed up they told me maybe I should have just had sex with her. Other than laughing about my "being scared of a woman" nothing was done. I left for college a few days later.

  • PER

    I can't understand why she didn't want to keep seeing him.

  • Prophet With Honor

    There is one strange mind.

  • PhatDevil

    I'm guessing this wasn't his first rodeo.

  • JuPMod

    Keep this guy in jail given he is a danger to the public. Some guys ( and women) just can't handle break-ups. It is better these type of people should not ever be in a relationship.

  • Connie

    How creepy. I hope they keep him behind bars so the woman can live her life.

  • Don'tBotherMe

    Sounds like she did everything right to hide from this creep. Doesn't she have a brother, father or uncle to take care of these matters?

  • Peppapeace

    Some men just don’t understand the word no!

  • My Mother Said

    He needs to meet Jacqueline Ades, that woman who sent a man she dated once approximately 65,000 texts over the course of months.

  • Art

    Thge guy is an oddball, but does this really rate as national news?
