NEW YORK, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- New York police arrested a man who works for Associated Press Television News for allegedly stalking one of the building's celebrity tenants.

Lincoln Karim, 43, has opposed the destruction of a hawk's nest at an upscale Manhattan co-op, where CNN anchor Paula Zahn and her family live, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

Zahn's husband, Richard Cohen, is president of the co-op's board, which decided last week to remove the nest of the city's most famous pair of now-homeless red-tailed hawks.

Karim is accused of stalking the family for days and screaming at Zahn's 7- and 11-year-old sons.

Police said he was expected to be charged with four counts of aggravated harassment and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
