BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) - A man is accused of stalking women at work and following them home, according to Boynton Beach police.
Officers say 29-year-old Jeff Santil frequents a KFC at 360 N. Congress Ave. and follows female employees in his car to their homes in surrounding cities. Police say around closing time, he hides close to the business in order to accomplish this.
