TMZ reported on Monday that Zuckerberg had obtained a restraining order against Pradeep Manukonda, telling police the man posed a potential threat after the unsolicited visits.

“I’m a peaceful guy … I’m sorry he thought I was trying to harm him,” Manukonda told the news and gossip website for an article posted early Tuesday. “I understand he’s a busy man … I’ll respect his privacy.”

Manukonda, 31, according to the website, told TMZ he had been dealing with a “major personal problem,” and he believed Zuckerberg could offer some advice. The suspect declined to go into any details on his aforementioned.
