NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- New Albany Police have charged 63-year-old Charles Conner with felony counts of stalking and criminal confinement after he allegedly threatened to put acid on his ex-girlfriend's face and cut off her breasts.
 
Conner, the former owner of Conner's Jewelers, allegedly violated multiple protection orders that the victim has filed against him since last fall.
 
An arrest affidavit says Conner called the victim 169 times in one day.
 
He also allegedly attacked her with a taser when she came out of a bathroom, threw her on a bed and placed a pillow over her face.
 
The victim also alleges that Conner placed a GPS tracking device on her vehicle.
 
Police say the Charles Conner's son Bryan told them that his father asked him for nitric acid and duct tape to use in his attack against the victim.
 
Conner is being held Thursday night in the Floyd County Jail under a $10,000 bond.
 
The victim did not wish to do an on-camera interview, but said that her life has been a nightmare since their relationship ended.
