Apple has granted a temporary restraining order to Tim Cook’s stalker

Apple won a temporary restraining order against a man who allegedly stalked and harassed CEO Tim Cook and other business leaders.

According to legal documents discovered by OneZeroI’m Dave Gershgorn, Rakesh “Rocky” Sharma started calling Apple executives and left “disturbing” voicemails. That behavior escalated last December when Sharma invaded the property of Palo Alto in Cook, attempting to deliver flowers and a bottle of champagne, according to court documents. Sharma is said to have entered through “a closed gate without permission.” He entered the same way a second time in January and rang the doorbell for Cook.

The Palo Alto Police Department did not arrest Sharma for leaving the premises before they arrived.

Allegedly, Sharma threatened violence against Apple executives and said, “I don’t use ammunition, but I know people who do.”

Apple did not respond immediately to a request for comment. It was not immediately clear whether Sharma had retained a lawyer at the time of publication.

According to NBC News, Sharma has been ordered to stay away from the company’s headquarters, Cook, his property and other Apple executives. The restraining order is in force until March 3, and a hearing will be held on the same day.
