Authorities suspect a man broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment and used a knife to stick a copy of a no-contact order on a wall of her Dubuque apartment.
Police say the gist of a message written on the order was: Who's going to stop me?
The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports that police have arrested the suspect, 24-year-old Bodhi-Kristoffer McGowan, on charges of burglary and violating a no-contact order the woman had sought against him.
His attorney didn't immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.
Police say the woman reported that she returned Monday from a trip and found that her apartment had been ransacked.
Officers say they found an ice cream container that had four knives stuck into it.
