PALM BEACH GARDENS Police in South Florida say they charged a man with stalking tennis star Serena Williams after he tried to enter her gated subdivision.

Palm Beach Gardens police say 40-year-old Patenema Ouedraogo tried to walk into the subdivision Monday night. They say security guards asked for his driver's license and found he matched the description of a man accused of stalking Williams.

It's unclear if Ouedraogo has an attorney. He is being held on $25,000 bond.

Williams' attorney told police he recently filed an injunction against Ouedraogo after he tried to contact Williams three times.
