“Until now, the police haven’t been able to find him,” Valencia said.
Martin’s publicist did not immediately respond for comment.
It was not immediately known who applied for the injunction. Valencia said he could not provide further details because the order was filed under Puerto Rico’s Domestic Violence Act.
El Vocero, a Puerto Rico newspaper, said the order states Martin and the other party dated for seven months. The report cites the order as saying they split two months ago, but the petitioner says Martin did not accept the split and has been seen loitering near the petitioner’s home on at least three occasions.
“The petitioner fears for his safety,” El Vocero quoted the order as saying.
AP has not received a copy of the order.
Valencia said the order prohibits Martin from contacting or calling the person who filed it and that a judge will later decide at a hearing whether the order should stand or be overturned. He added that orders are usually filled for at least a month.
Valencia noted that the person seeking the injunction failed to contact police, which would have led prosecutors to determine whether there was enough evidence to charge. Rather, the application went directly to the court.
