LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man arrested Tuesday and charged with stalking has been rearrested for violation of a protective order, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Gerald B. Debarge, 47, was arrested Friday after an investigation reportedly revealed that he violated a protective order filed in March, according to authorities.

On Thursday, CPSO detectives received a report from a woman advising that over the last five months, she received numerous harassing and intimidating text messages and phone calls from Debarge, with whom she had an active protective order against. 

The victim also advised detectives that she did not report the incidents because she was so fearful of Debarge, but when she saw that he was incarcerated for stalking another woman, she contacted the Sheriff's Office.

Debarge was previously arrested and charged with stalking after an investigation revealed he made several harassing comments to another victim on numerous occasions since June, according to authorities.

Judge Clayton Davis set Debarge's bond at $100,000 for the violation of a protective order charge, bringing his total bond to $325,000. 

Debarge has been incarcerated at the Calcasieu Correctional Center since his Tuesday arrest.

CPSO Detective Chadwick LeJune is the lead investigator on both cases.
