ONLY ON 11: Woman says she was stalked, poisoned by ex-boyfriend



CANONSBURG, Pa. - A woman told Channel 11 Friday she has lived in fear, as she has allegedly been stalked and poisoned.

Anita Friend said she is afraid of her ex-boyfriend and hopes he doesn’t get out of jail.

“I have plastic on my windows and chimes on all of my doors,” she said.

Detectives said Raymond Husman didn’t just stalk Friend; they’re also investigating him for allegedly poisoning her.

Friend got a PFA against Husman in October after she mysteriously became ill.  Police said he may have been poisoning her and himself.

“I lost my hearing, and I developed a lisp,” Friend said.

Friend said Husman has sent her hundreds of text messages.  She saved them to show a judge, she said.

“There’s one here.  He tells me he’s dying and taking his last breath,” Friend said.

Officers arrested Husman while he was leaving a hospital Friday. 

Friend said Friday was the first time she has slept well in years, but now she is afraid of his release.

Eight percent of women and 2 percent of men are stalked at some point in their lifetime; 75 percent of victims are women and 90 percent of stalkers are men.
