  • I would at least go to the police and make a report of it, that way if anything does actually happen to you, there is a record of it.

  • Do you have a lawyer? Talk to them, if not, call the police, they can give you some advice

  • Yep call the cops and tell them you are scared. Theyll take out a report and he will probably be charged with communicating threats. At that point get a restraining order and know once you do you cannot have contact with him either.

  • Yes you can use that. It's a threat of bodily harm. That's illegal. Texts are used as evidence in all types of cases as well.

    I had a moron of a nanny I fired send me a text how she can't wait to call CPS on me so I'll lose my kids. Writing, "hahaha, you are going to lose your kids, I'm telling them that you beat your kids. You'll get yours" Dumbass....

  • Oh BTW, you don't have to pay for the restraining order if you report it to the police, because it's a threat of bodily harm.

  • send some fella's to handle him..... LOL just kidding.
    YES, you can go to the police station and file a report., they can come out to you aswell, but in order to file a RO you have to go down there. and I am pretty sure,,,, it will be an issue at work too. they my can change your schedules so that you don't cross paths. or they could let one of you go. I would take aside the manager and explain the situation and let them know that you are fearful of him and what he might do. THEN YOU NEED TO BE CAUTIOUS OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALLLLL TIMES!!!! EVERYWHERE.. (getting the child in and out of the car etc.) JUST SAYING. and probably you wont be able to have contact with him (if he has visitations, someone else will have to drop off) good luck doll

  • He made a threat to you to do you harm...its illegal for him to do it...get a restraining order. Since you guys work in the same facility, he may get fired not you. Also, stop stooping to his level. If he sends you messages that doesn't pertain to the welfare of your child, delete the message.

  • You responded to the text messages.. showing that it is not harassment. You need to go to the police station and see about filing a protective order, and CHANGE YOUR NUMBER!
