JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau police say a five-month investigation has led to the arrest of a Juneau man for allegedly making obscene phone calls to female employees at various locations in the city.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/1eXXa7f) 23-year-old William T. Hitchens was arrested Monday on multiple counts of misdemeanor harassment for obscene calls to a Juneau elementary school, a public library, and the Juneau Empire.

Prosecutors allege they have linked the three cases from October through January by phone records from communications providers.

An employee at the newspaper told authorities that the voice sounded like a relative’s ex-boyfriend.

Police followed up on the lead, contacting Hitchens at his apartment.

The public defender’s office told The Associated Press that Hitchens‘ attorney, Tom Wagner, is out of town and wasn’t available for comment.
