Sorry to bother you. But, I just spoke with one of my sister's friends and he said that she HAS called the police on him a few weeks ago. The boyfriend had threatened to kill her! She got upset and called the police, but she didn't pursue the restraining order. Would it help to call the police, would they take him away? Or would they just say to file the restraining order?
Thanks so much. That's what I thought.
