UCF professor accused of stalking student: 'Be happy that somebody likes you this much to stalk you'
A University of Central Florida professor is facing stalking charges after a Ph.D student says he sent her more than 800 messages per day and watched her work out through the window at her gym. Ali Borji, a 39-year-old assistant professor in the school’s Department of Computer Science, was arrested at his on-campus office Thursday night. He faces two charges of stalking — both misdemeanors. The victim met Borji last June while she was working on her Ph.D. She told police that Borji reached out to her on Facebook to help with her studies. They went on a few dates before the victim told him that their relationship needed to remain professional, authorities said. But police say Borji still tried contacting her. After the woman threatened to report him to authorities, Borji sent an email which read, “We are just one step away from eternal happiness,” police said. Source
