Curtrenka Anderson pointed to thousands of dollars in vandalism at her Akron home, vandalism she claims started happening after she broke-up with her boyfriend.

Anderson has filed more than three dozen reports with the Akron Police Department, and has filed for a protection order.

Several windows at her home have been broken-out three times, her home has been spray painted with graffiti, and arson investigators with the Akron Fire Department have confirmed some one tried to burn down her garage, causing $20,000 in damage.

Anderson said her car and her mother's car have been targeted, windows broken-out on both vehicles.

Akron police say Anderson's ex-boyfriend, 48 year old Patrick Eugene Wooden Sr., is a suspect in the vandalism spree.

Police told Wooden is also wanted on a domestic violence warrant on another case, but so far detectives have been unable to to find him.

Anderson said she was shocked to find out weeks before her break-up with Wooden, that he's been a registered sex offender in Summit County since 1997.

Police told Wooden was added to the sex offender list after being convicted on a gross sexual imposition charge, and had been in jail as recently as 2008.

Police said anyone with information on the whereabouts of Patrick Eugene Wooden, should contact the Akron Detective Bureau.

Meanwhile Anderson believes all women should run some basic background checks before they start dating someone on a regular basis.

"This charming guy comes into your life, he does stuff for you he does stuff for the kids, you think he's the perfect guy, and in all reality when you find out he's the devil," said Anderson.
