LOS ANGELES— A man charged with stalking Kendall Jenner showed a single-minded focus in his efforts to meet the model and reality show star, even after he knew she was afraid of him, a prosecutor told jurors Thursday.

Deputy City Attorney Alex Perez said during closing arguments at the trial that defendant Shavaughn McKenzie tracked Jenner’s movements over a 15-month period and somehow managed to find her secluded Hollywood Hills home only weeks after she moved in.


McKenzie had accosted Jenner twice outside her condominium in Westwood and had been warned by police not to try to contact Jenner, Perez said.


“He knew the victim was afraid of him,” Perez said. “And he still does it again.”

Perez urged the jury to convict McKenzie of misdemeanor stalking and trespassing charges.

McKenzie’s attorney Taylor Shramo has yet to give his closing argument but has said his client is mentally ill and posed no threat to the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star.

Authorities say the 25-year-old transient was arrested outside Jenner’s home in August after he followed her into her driveway and banged on her window while refusing to leave.

“She doesn’t want to be surrounded by security,” Perez said. “And she certainly doesn’t want to be stalked.”
