David Holthouse was arrested Saturday for allegedly stalking the man he wrote about in Westword's May 13 cover story. In "Stalking the Bogeyman," Holthouse described a plan to kill the man who he says raped him when he was a 7-year-old boy. He put that plan aside after his parents discovered the assault. Holthouse says the stalking charges came after he asked a friend to watch the alleged rapist's house to make sure the man wouldn't retaliate against Holthouse's parents, Sean Kelly reports in the Denver Post.
