A professor in Florida was arrested after police said he stalked a candidate who spurned him after a few dates.
Ali Borji, 39, who taught at the University of Central Florida’s computer science department, was charged with two felony counts of stalking when he was arrested Thursday at his office.
The researchers said Borji stalking the woman began after they dated last June, watching her at the gym and messaging her, “You should be happy that someone loves you this much to haunt you,” Fox 35 Orlando reported.
They said at a given moment Borji sent the woman 800 texts in a single day.
“Our detectives acted quickly in this case, if the UCF Police Department when someone feels threatened,” UCF Deputy police chief Carl Metzger said, according to the station.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that the woman said Borji resumed stalking her this spring after she took a semester off to get away from him.
On Tuesday, she told the police she saw Borji after her in his car, the paper reported.
The arrest affidavit submitted to the court, that Borji “acknowledged that he made a mistake and he would have to apologize to the victim as they stood in front of him.”
Before his arrest Borji resignation to UCF administrators.
The prison records showed he was released on bail; they did not have a lawyer. Fox News’ attempts to contact Borji were not successful.
