Boyfriend reported for threats at UNMH
On January 28, officers arrived at UNMH on a report of a woman who said she was in fear of being followed. According to the report, Claudia Molina said she was at a gym when her boyfriend called her and asked her where she was, intending to visit her. Molina reportedly told him not to bother, as she was leaving, and saw that he was waiting in the parking lot; she drove off, and noticed him following her, according to the report.
Molina called APD, who directed her to UNMH and instructed her to find hospital security. Her boyfriend entered UNMH after Molina and began shouting at her, with threats against her ex-boyfriend and of knowing where Molina lives, despite Molina having never given him her address, according to the report.
The responding officer contacted the boyfriend, who stated that the incident Molina described never occurred, and that UNMH surveillance footage would prove that, according to the report.
Police were able to contact the district court judge and obtain Molina an emergency restraining order.
