Officers then went to a home in the 4600 block of Franklin Drive to try and locate the ex-girlfriend. While at her home speaking to her and investigating the call, she denied being over at his home. She reported that the man had been calling her all day, and showed officers at least 50 incoming phone calls and numerous text messages on her cell phone from him. She also told Officers that he had called 911 before reporting a shooting at her home causing emergency units to respond.
While Officers were still there talking to her, the man called 911 to report that the female had returned back to his home on Christie Street and she was there throwing bottles at his house.
The Officers went back to the ex-boyfriends house and arrested, Julio Villarreal (10/17/1981), for making a false report to police and harassment. They also determined that he had cut himself earlier with a beer bottle.
