1 harassment on Sun Mar 03, 2013 2:40 pm


Arresto Menor
Good day po.

I have a situation po with my ex-girlfriend. We made a deal when we broke up to give back our things. She gave me back mine. I have not given her hers. She keeps complaining for they are worth a big amount. She threatens me saying "how do you want to die?", "I can involve anyone here, even the oldest and the youngest", and such. She keeps on telling she can hire someone to do the job
She also slapped me in face in public. I already went to the police to blotter her. What else can I do? Can I file a lawsuit, harassment?

Thank you. Sad
