Even knowing officers were sitting with his ex-girlfriend didn’t stop a man from repeatedly calling and threatening to kill her, Tacoma police said.

The woman filed for a temporary protection order against her former boyfriend Wednesday and police came to interview her at her home in the 1500 block of S. 9th Street.

While police were at the victim’s home, the ex-boyfriend called several times about 10:40 p.m. and made threats.

The man was not able to be located.
