CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Deerfield woman was charged Monday with stalking Rev. Michael Pfleger -- allegedly violating an order of protection he took out against the woman earlier this month.

Lydia Kuzniar, 55, of the 1100 block of Montgomery Drive in Deerfield, was charged Monday afternoon with felony counts of stalking and aggravated stalking in violation of an order of protection, a police source said.

Police arrested Kuzniar Sunday at 11:13 a.m. at St. Sabina Church, 1210 W. 78th Pl., where Pfleger is pastor, police said.

Authorities couldn't immediately say why what she was doing at the parish, but said she was previously arrested at the church Nov. 8 for allegedly trespassing. Pfleger had a "no-contact" order served to her two days later, police said.

Kuzniar allegedly violated that same order of protection on Nov. 11, about 11:30 a.m., when she was again arrested at the church for trespassing and misdemeanor stalking, according to police.

Pfleger, an outspoken anti-violence activist, has been pastor at the Auburn Gresham neighborhood church since 1981.

Kuzniar is expected to appear in bond court Tuesday.
