A: Best advice is to stay as far away as possible from this person now and forever. If you go to the police and make a report as to the threat, then the police will probably reach out to this person, who may or may not have planned to contact the police. As a result of being contacted, this person may then decide to go forward with her threats and make the claims against you. had you not gone to the police, she may or may not have gone through with her threats.

Best suggestion is that you send her a text message simply saying that you realize that it is best that the 2 of you terminate all further contact and communications. And then block her number and make it a point never to contact her ever again. And if she calls or texts you, ignore them.
