15. When I tried to leave he barred the door and started cutting himself with a knife saying he would kill himself if I left.
“Late to the party but here’s a short list of the insane things my ex did
-physically assaulted me numerous times, when I tried to leave he barred the door and started cutting himself with a knife saying he would kill himself if I left. I socked him in the jaw to get him out of the way (broke his nose, it shocked him and I managed to escape). I then ran down the street and hid, called my dad to come get me, and then called the crisis mental health unit and had my BF sectioned. He escaped the hospital and walked around 20km to come find me.
-when I broke up with him and sought refuge at my parents’ house, ex would call me relentlessly….as in, non stop 24/7 until I picked up. This was before iPhones so it was a little harder to block a number. I would answer, hit mute and record at the same time, and he would just rant and rave non-stop. I ended up showing these recordings to the police.
-he kept sending me messages saying he needed to see me and that he was coming over. I ignored him. The following morning at about 5am, my dad couldn’t sleep and went downstairs for a smoke- to find my ex drunk and asleep in the bushes outside.
-one day, a friend of my ex’s called me in a panic saying he had called the police to my house and to lock the doors. My ex had told his friend that he was going to kill me and had set out with a knife.
-this all went down about 5 years ago, but every 6 months on the day he finds a way to send me a message, usually just “you’ll never know who I am but you’re a terrible evil person” type stuff.
-he did all of these things to multiple other women. We have a Facebook group to warn each other if he ever makes contact.”
