Valid Smiri, a 36-year-old unemployed construction worker with no fixed abode, was taken into custody in a town near the Sardinian capital of Cagliari.

He may face charges of stalking, police said.

His ex, a 47-year-old Sardinian woman, had been "persecuted" since she broke off their three-month relationship in 2012, police said.
