A Portage man has pleaded guilty to assault and stalking.

Jordan Hendrix, 27, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

Hendrix was indicted on Oct. 3 for two separate incidents.

In the first case, he was indicted for menacing by stalking, a fourth-degree felony, and burglary, a third-degree felony.

Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jim Hoppenjans said that on Sept. 2, Bowling Green police were called to the 1500 block of Clough Street for a breaking and entering report. Security cameras showed Hendrix was inside the front door of the apartment. He accessed the home through a window.

Two days later, the Clough Street resident called the police again and said Hendrix had sent her a text message stating she looked cute crossing the road and he wanted some cookies. The only way he would have known about the cookies was if he was in her apartment.

Police found a black camera under the TV stand that was attempting to rotate but was stuck on the carpet. The camera was recording.

Hendrix pleaded guilty to the menacing by stalking charge.

He also was indicted for two counts assault, both fourth-degree felonies; criminal trespass, a fourth-degree misdemeanor; petty theft, a first-degree misdemeanor; and resisting arrest, a second-degree misdemeanor.

On Sept. 4, Bowling Green police again responded to the 1500 block of Clough Street on a report Hendrix was looking into vehicles and trying door handles at the apartment complex. He was later spotted riding a bicycle in the 200 block of South Mercer Road.

Hendrix tried to flee when an attempt was made to place him in investigative custody. He shoved one officer to the ground and the two grappled before a taser was deployed by a second officer. Hendrix kept pulling away then got on top the second officer. The first officer wrapped his arms around Hendrix and pulled him backward. A taser was deployed again.

During the investigation, officers found that Hendrix had been trespassed from the property in the 1500 block of Clough Street. He also stole a bicycle from an apartment in Portage earlier that day.

Hendrix pleaded guilty to two amended counts on assault, both first-degree misdemeanors, and the petty theft and resisting arrested charges as indicted.

Hoppenjans recommended a sentence of community control.

Kuhlman said he could impose a sentence of 180 days for the misdemeanor 1 charges, 90 days for the misdemeanor 2 charge and six to 18 months for the felony charge. The sentences could be consecutive.

Sentencing was scheduled for March 2.
