A Monroe County man has been cited for violating a protection from abuse (PFA) order.

State police at Fern Ridge said Michael Harper, 32, of East Stroudsburg, violated the order by sending text messages to a 33-year-old woman from Jackson Township, at 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, June 9.

Troopers said the PFA order prohibited Harper from having any kind of contact with the victim.
