STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Police arrested a 44-year-old man for violating sex offender laws.

Eric Hurd, a registered sex offender, is accused of stalking a college-aged couple during their walk around Boomer Lake. The arrest warrant shows the couple reported the incident on May 10, when Hurd was slowly following them in a blue truck.

"They'd noticed him and at some point made contact with him and in that exchange he told them he'd been following them, playing a game," said Stillwater Police Capt. Kyle Gibbs.

Gibbs said it's unclear what game Hurd believed he was playing in following the couple, but given his lengthy criminal record it was a concern.

Hurd most recently served prison time for a 2003 rape and burglary. He also has several convictions dating back to the 90s including stalking, harassing phone calls, trespassing, disturbing the peace, and violating a protective order.

"We felt some sense of urgency to get the file charged and get him arrested," said Gibbs.

But when police tried to track him down, they discovered Hurd was living in an area where sex offenders are prohibited.

A home daycare was close by and it turns out Hurd failed to register.
