MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man accused of stalking a 14-year-old girl for months is in Shelby County Jail on a $4,000 bond.

Police arrested 52-year-old Ramon Barajas on Monday after the victim identified him from a photo lineup.

According to a police report, the teen spotted Barajas following her in a white van on at least five separate occasions around her home in the area of East Parkway South and Sam Cooper Boulevard, near Overton Park.

The incidents happened between June and September of 2014.

Investigators say Barajas told them he was just being friendly and was not approaching the girl for sex.

In the affidavit, Barajas told police he "talks to girls that he sees as he drives around."

He is charged with stalking and is due in court Tuesday, Feb. 3.
