SOUTHINGTON - Police are looking for a Watertown man charged with harassing and threatening to kill someone in Southington.

Joshoel Mullen, 33, was ordered to be re-arrested and held on $65,000 after not showing up to a scheduled hearing Friday, in Bristol Superior Court.

According to police, Mullen on Nov. 1 called the complainant numerous times and sent multiple text messages that were described as harassing and threatening. One of the text messages, police said, implied that Mullen was stalking the victim.

In that case, Mullen faces charges of second-degree stalking, second-degree harassment and violation of a protective order.

Then, on Nov. 19, police said Mullen was speaking with the complainant’s mother when he threatened to kill the victim. This was a violation of a protective order issued on behalf of the complainant. Mullen turned himself in that day and was charged with second-degree threatening and violation of a protective order, according to police.

Police did not release further details about the victim.

Court officials on Friday said Mullen will be charged with failure to appear in court when he is found.
