LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) – A woman in Oklahoma has requested a protective order against a Texas state senator whom she accuses of stalking and threatening to harm her.

Cynthia Ortiz made the allegations against Republican Sen. Charles Perry of Lubbock in court documents filed last week in Creek County, Oklahoma.

Jordan Berry, authorized by Perry’s attorney to speak on behalf of the lawmaker, denies the first-term senator has done anything to warrant a protective order. He says the woman has been around Perry off and on at campaign events for at least five years.

Ortiz on Monday posted a photo on Twitter of a judge’s order for a May 19 hearing to consider the request. The Associated Press obtained a copy of her request and the judge’s order.
