NEW BRITAIN -

Connecticut police say a 31-year-old man is facing charges for stalking a woman at two different I-95 rest stops.

Police say a 37-year-old New York woman stopped at a rest stop in Darien on March 12 and noticed while she was there that a man was staring at her. Police say she then traveled to a rest stop in Fairfield where they say the same man asked her to perform a sex act on him. 

Police say the woman took pictures of the man, who has been identified as Awad Awad, and then notified authorities.

Police say the pictures helped them locate and arrest Awad at his home in New Britain.
