Cambridge man charged after allegedly emailing, texting Natick man hundreds of times to drop harassment order

“There were just hundreds and hundreds of them."

A Cambridge man is facing charges after he allegedly emailed and texted a Natick man at least several hundred times this past week telling him to drop the harassment order he had against him.

Michael Bonner, 51, of 20 Forest St., was arrested by Cambridge police Tuesday afternoon for the Natick police. He’s being charged with violating a harassment prevention order, threatening to commit a crime, criminal harassment, and intimidation of a witness, according to the MetroWest Daily News. Bonner was arraigned on Wednesday and released with conditions.

The alleged victim had reportedly gotten the harassment prevention order back in September. Bonner was sending him text messages at the time, the Daily News reported.

However, the texts and email started up again this week, the alleged victim told police. While the messages came through via numbers and email addresses that weren’t Bonner’s, the messages had information that just Bonner would know, police told the newspaper.

The alleged victim said he’d gotten over 360 messages, all allegedly from Bonner.

“There were just hundreds and hundreds of them,” Lt. Cara Rossi told the Daily News.
