SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A judge has issued an injunction against Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin, police said Saturday.
Police spokesman Axel Valencia told The Associated Press, police spokesman Axel Valencia said:
“So far, the police have not been able to find him,” Valencia said.
Martin’s poster did not immediately return a message requesting comment.
It is not clear who requested the immediate ban. Valencia said he could not provide further details because the order was filed under Puerto Rico’s domestic violence law.
El Vocero, a Puerto Rican newspaper, said the order stated that Martin and the other had been dating for seven months. The report cites the order as they broke up two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin does not accept the separation and has been seen wandering near the claimant’s home at least three times.
“The petitioner feared for his safety,” El Vocero quoted the order as saying.
AP has not received a copy of the order.
Valencia said that the order prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who filed the application and that the judge will then determine at the hearing whether the order should be upheld or lifted. Normally, orders are fulfilled at least a month, he added.
Valencia noted that the person who applied for the restraining order did not contact the police, which would help prosecutors determine if there was enough evidence to press charges. Rather, the request goes directly to the court.
