According to a Sheriff’s report, Brostromrich had been stalking a 13-year-old female park resident for weeks before he entered the girl’s home uninvited while her grandfather was babysitting. When confronted, Brostromrich — who was wearing only underwear at the time — reportedly threatened the grandfather with a nearby skateboard before fleeing to his own trailer, where he was combative with arriving deputies.
