Hello
In respect of the matter, you can seek assistance from the police to place a restraining order against him.
Such domestic violence is serious and the police can act on your behalf.

Other than that, not much else can be done. You sadly cannot sue him for damages, the law is of the view that such things are part of life in that respect.

i wish i could give better news.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
