An Auburn police officer has been granted a one-year restraining order against a Millbury patrolman she dated after the woman said he terrorized her after she broke up with him.
Auburn Police Officer Stephanie Lynn Segur filed for the restraining order against Millbury Patrolman Michael R. Healy Jr. on Feb. 10. After a hearing in Worcester Central District Court that both attended, Judge Michael L. Fabbri extended the order to Feb. 23, 2015.
"I am terrified as to what Michael may do next. He has access to firearms because of his employment and has made it clear to me that no one else shall have me but him. I won't even sleep in my own home because I am afraid of what he'll do,'' Officer Segur wrote in her affidavit for the restraining order.
Officer Segur said that after she ended a two-year-relationship with Officer Healy on Jan. 1, they remained respectful and continued to talk as friends, although she refused each time he asked to resume dating. She said that since Jan. 31, after she started dating another man, Officer Healy has been "unpredictable and has had unbelievable mood swings.'' She said he started by texting her a picture he took of her boyfriend's vehicle parked in her driveway.
"He continually asks about my new boyfriend and if I've (engaged in sex) with him. He has also stated that he is going to destroy anyone involved with me. Within the same hour he will tell me that he loves me and wants a future with me,'' she wrote in the affidavit .
She said that on Feb. 8, when she was preoccupied and not responding to his text messages, Officer Healy repeatedly called her phone. When she finally answered her phone, she said he threatened to show up at her house and to email Auburn Police Chief Andrew J. Sluckis, Jr. in order to harm her in any way he could.
At that point, Officer Segur said, she left her home because she no longer felt safe, and she ignored all communication from him. But he allegedly continued to send her texts, including: "Make my life a living hell? Buckle up its only just begun.'' Another allegedly said: "Never kick me when I'm down, because when I get back up ... You're (expletive).''
Officer Segur said she stayed away from her home the weekend of Feb. 8 and 9. The following Monday morning, at 8:30, Officer Healy showed up at her home and began knocking on the door and ringing the doorbell.
She said she texted him to please leave, but he would not....
