An alleged stalker was reportedly ordered to stay away from Apple’s headquarters and its CEO Tim Cook after the man allegedly harassed Cook and members of the company’s executive team. 

The temporary restraining order was granted to keep Rakesh “Rocky” Sharma from the company and Cook, NBC News reported Thursday, citing court documents dated Feb. 13. 

Court documents allege Sharma trespassed on Cook’s personal property in Palo Alto in December, entering through a closed gate and tried to deliver flowers and a bottle of champagne to Cook, according to the news source. 

Before the alleged trespassing, Sharma allegedly left “disturbing voicemails” on an unnamed Apple's executives phone and called the technical support line saying he knew where members of the executive team live, according to the court documents. 

He was reportedly ordered to stay away from Cook, Cook’s property, the executive team and the company's headquarters, Apple Park. The temporary restraining order is set to expire March 3, when a hearing is scheduled on the case. 

An official for Apple was not immediately available for comment.
