VAN BUREN, Ark. (KFSM) -

An Arkansas man is accused of harassing a bank teller by calling her at work and asking her to "punish" him.

The Van Buren Police Department arrested Drake Parks, 50, of Van Buren, Ark., Thursday for harassing communications, according to a news release from Detective Jonathan Wear, public information officer for the Van Buren Police Department. 

Parks was arrested due to complains filed against him for inappropriate comments to a local bank teller, according to the news release. 

Authorities received a report on Feb. 28 from the teller reporting the inappropriate comments. 

The victim, a young woman, stated that Parks had come into the bank that day and made a transaction. She then received a call at approximately 3:30 p.m. The caller stated that he was Drake Parks' father and that Parks had said the teller was being an [expletive] that day. 

The caller went on to say that Parks should be punished for saying that and there would be $50 in her pocket if she would "punish" Parks.

The teller then stated that Parks got on the phone and said that he wanted her to do what his father told her to. He started to give her an address when she hung up and contacted the police, according to the news release. 

Parks was arrested on Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest for Harassing Communications. He was booked into the Crawford County Detention Center.
