Authorities say a woman was stalking a Paradise Valley man multiple times, including taking a bath in his home.

Police say some of those messages were threatening.

Jacqueline Ades, 31, of Phoenix, was arrested on charges of threatening, stalking and harassment after allegedly sending thousands of messages - including one stating she wanted to bathe in his blood.

When confronted by police by the business, which is owned by the man she had been texting and whose home she trespassed, she told police that "she was married to the owner".

After being released, she reportedly sent threatening texts "indicating that harm may come" to the man, police said.

The victim says he met her online and the pair went on one date over a year ago.

"... Don't ever try to leave me ... I'll kill you. I don't wanna be a murderer", she wrote in another, according to the station.

Last month, the man called police after surveillance footage from his home showed Ades taking a bath in his tub while he was away on a trip.

Ades is set to appear in court May 15.

Officers found a butcher knife in her vehicle when she was most recently arrested. When Paradise Valley officers heard of the incident they arrested Ades in Phoenix.

Ades also admitted to knowing her statements were "crazy" and planned to return to Florida when released from jail.

Police responded to a call Friday at the man's job where witnesses reportedly saw Ades acting hysterically and even claiming to be the man's wife.

"Defendant stated that she did not want to hurt victim because she loved him and that she threatened him because she did not want him to leave", added the report. The victim stated that after that date, he received approximately 65,000 messages from the suspect and she will send 500 a day. She said that she "knew her statements were insane and that she would return to Florida when released", the report alleges.
