An Ellicott City man accused of stalking a former girlfriend more than 15 years after their break-up was released yesterday after posting 10 percent of his $4,000 bail.

Robert S. Trollinger, 39, was arrested yesterday on a criminal warrant and charged with harassment, stalking and telephone misuse.

The woman, married and living in Woodbine, told police that Trollinger called her and wrote letters between Dec. 11, 1995, and May 20, according to court papers. She had broken off the relationship about 1979 and had not seen him since about 1980, she stated in the complaint.

The woman said Trollinger wanted her to explain why she had broken off the relationship. She said he repeatedly tried to persuade her to leave her husband and resume their relationship.

The woman kept a log of phone calls, some of which she said her husband intercepted. She filed a complaint after Trollinger began making comments about being together with her after death, she said.

Trollinger's trial was scheduled for Sept. 6. He was ordered to have no contact with the woman or her family.
