Man Arrested for Stalking KYW’s Erika von Tiehl

A Havertown, PA man was arrested for stalking KYW anchor Erika von Tiehl last night, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.

The man, John Hart, was taken into custody at his residence. Von Tiehl reportedly had filed a complaint against him, though details of the allegations have not been released.

“It’s a private matter and beyond that, we’re not going to make any comment,” KYW spokeswoman Joanne Calabria told the Daily News.

Von Tiehl is the morning co-anchor on KYW, which is the CBS owned-and-operated station in Philadelphia.
