ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida college professor stalked a student, following her around and messaging her hundreds of times a day.

A University of Central Florida police report says 39-year-old Ali Borji, an assistant computer science professor, was arrested Thursday at his on-campus office and charged with two misdemeanor stalking counts.

The victim told police that she had met Borji last June while she was working on her Ph.D, and they dated for a short time before she decided to end it. Authorities say Borji continued to message and seek out the woman in person.

The woman told police she eventually moved out of state last fall to get away from Borji. When she returned for the spring semester, she says the stalking resumed.

The university says Borji has resigned and been banned from the campus.



Borji was being held on $1,000 bail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
