MANKATO-- Prosecutors have charged a Mankato man with stalking his transgender neighbor.

Fifty six-year-old Randy Alan Adams was charged Friday with two firearm felonies and three stalking felonies in Blue Earth County District Court.

According to a criminal complaint, a man transitioning to becoming a woman told police on Wednesday that Adams was pounding on her apartment door because she told the landlord he smoked marijuana. An officer later heard Adams use a gay slur to describe the victim to another officer.

The victim told police that Adams had called her derogatory names linked to the victim's sexual orientation in June.

Adams was in custody at the Blue Earth County jail on Saturday.
