Scorned customer allegedly threatened business owners
A Sunshine Coast man has been charged with stalking for racially vilifying business owners and threatening to damage their business, police allege.
Caloundra police officer-in-charge John Mahony said a 39-year-old Caloundra man was arrested and charged with stalking on Wednesday.
Senior Sergeant Mahony said Caloundra police started an investigation on Monday after the local business owners made a complaint.
“Police received a complaint from a local retailer regarding (alleged) threats to damage business premises and racial vilification of the business owners,” he said.
Sen-Sgt Mahony said the man was a previous customer of the business.
The man has been charged with two offences of stalking.
He is expected to appear in Caloundra Magistrates Court on November 1.
