Sonya Deville Awarded Injunction Against Stalker

Sonya Deville made headlines last week for all the wrong reasons when it was revealed that a 24-year-old man called Phillip A. Thomas II broke into her home with the intention of taking her hostage.

The star was home all night and Thomas reportedly waited for her to go to bed before letting himself into her house and activating the alarm.

Deville spotted the man on her property and fled with a friend while calling 911 and the police were able to arrest the suspect in her house who was armed with a selection of tools that proved that he was planning to take the former MMA star hostage.

It was later revealed that Thomas had been planning the attempted kidnapping for months and had been stalking the star on social media before then going through with his plan.

PWInsider reports that Thomas remains in custody but he is now preparing to stand in front of a court.

Deville has been awarded a temporary injunction against the man, who had been stalking the star for more than a year, but now has another court date later this month to make that injunction permanent.

Thomas was charged with Aggravated Stalking, Armed Burglary of a Dwelling, Attempted Armed Kidnapping, and Criminal Mischief.

The man is currently being held without a bond and will have a hearing on Thursday to find out if he is allowed to post a bond.
