A 44-year-old Massachusetts woman was arrested near former Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein's Lakeview, Chicago home Monday and charged with two counts of felony stalking, police told the Chicago Tribune.

Kathleen Kearney of Canton was arrested about two blocks from Epstein's home, telling police she was "inviting Mr. Epstein to go to church." Police brought Kearney to the home so Epstein could identify her as the person who had been warned about stalking the five-bedroom home. Kearney admitted to police that she had been watching the house.

Concerns over a stalker seem to have followed Epstein from Boston to Chicago, where he is now the Cubs' team president. Peter Gammons wrote in an MLB.com article last year that "there often was an unmarked Brookline police cruiser at the end of his street because of a stalker and concerns about the family privacy."

Kearney is expected to appear in court later today, according to the Tribune.
