Paramedics took a man to a hospital for evaluation Sunday after his friend reported to police that he was talking in tongues, declaring himself God, threatening her with a knife and doing other things that were out of character.
The woman said her friend asked her to accompany him to a movie, but she suggested they watch a movie at her apartment instead.
They were having a conversation about God, she said, when he suddenly declared that he was God.
He announced that they were going to have sex. She told him that was disrespectful and he insisted that they were going to have a sexual encounter and picked up a pair of scissors, according to a police report.
She ran into the bathroom, and he threw the scissors across the room and ran into the living room.
She was fearful for him and followed. She reported that she saw him “levitate” for about 10 feet across the room. She feared he was going to go over the balcony, so she shoved a table across the door.
He picked up a knife and she defended herself with a curtain rod, she said. Then she grabbed a baseball bat. He began chanting “Red, green, go” over and over and “flying” around the room, she said.
He was flailing his arms and hit her, the report states. She struck him with the bat, she said. He began speaking in a language she didn’t understand. She called 911 at that point.
She told police that her friend uses steroids and GHB, called the date rape drug, but that he did not appear to have taken anything when he first arrived.
Later she reported that he was texting her from the hospital that he was not sorry for what happened.
