Police: Roseville man accused of stalking women


Roseville police arrested a local man for allegedly stalking women as they jogged.

Reports of a man slowly following, making u-turns and staring at the women while in an older model white car came in from neighborhoods near Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard and Baseline Road, and on Reserve Drive/Diamond Oaks Road, police spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said. Some of the women were so unnerved by the man they hid or called a relative to pick them up, they told police.

Based on descriptions provided by the women, officers identified a suspect and picked up 22-year-old Logan Dale Fagre on Sunday morning after a woman jogging in a west Roseville neighborhood noticed a man following her and called police, Gunther said. Responding officers found Fagre in his car near Pleasant Grove Boulevard and Foothills Boulevard.

Roseville area high school students accused of hate crime


ROSEVILLE (AP) - A group of Roseville area high school students is suspected of a hate crime after they allegedly spread cotton balls on the front lawn of an African-American classmate's home.

The Sacramento Bee reported Friday that 13 students at Oakmont High School have been referred to juvenile court for last month's incident. The newspaper says cotton balls used this way evoke images of slavery, upsetting the student's family.

Roseville police spokesperson Dee Dee Gunther said the students each face a misdemeanor charge.

Brad Basham of the Roseville Joint Union High School District said the school is planning community meetings to discuss racial issues.

Oakmont junior Nicole Herrera, who wasn't among the 13 students, said it was a joke and not meant to be racist.
