Sister of tennis star Eugenie Bouchard to testify in harassment case

A preliminary hearing gets underway Thursday for a 40 year old man, who has been charged with criminal harassment involving the sister of tennis star Eugenie Bouchard, Charlotte.

Charlotte Bouchard filed a complaint with police in 2017 after getting thousands of creepy messages from a man whom she had blocked on her Instagram account, but who subsequently opened 40 more accounts, sending her up to 30 messages a day.

The final straw was when the suspect posted a photo of the store where she worked.

Danny Arseneault was arrested at his apartment in Verdun in February of last year.

Bouchard tells La Presse that since his arrest the messages have stopped.

Bouchard is expected to testify at the hearing.
