Baylor football player Rami Hammad was arrested for stalking his ex-girlfriend Monday.

The affidavit said that the victim had taken extensive measures to avoid Hammad. She subleased a new home and changed cars in order to avoid Hammad.

One incident happened when classes started at Baylor. She said Hammad found her and waited until her class was over in an attempt to talk to her.

She asked for her professor to help her, and the professor led her into her office.

The affidavit said that Hammad began to continually knock on the door to the office, asking to see his ex-girlfriend.

The professor called Baylor police to help diffuse the situation.

Hammad told officers he was very concerned for his ex-girlfriend and had gone to where he thought she was staying with her mother. He said the apartment door was open, and he went inside. The apartment was empty.

After searching the apartment, he began to searching all the “pet friendly” hotels in Waco.

He told the officers he was just trying to mend their troubled relationship.

The victim said Hammad repeatedly called her and texted her, causing her to block him from her phone.

In another incident, the victim said an anonymous delivery of her favorite food from her favorite restaurant was made. She believes this was Hammad.

On two separate occasions, Hammad learned his ex-girlfriend’s whereabouts and made contact with her.

The victim has left the state.

Baylor's Executive Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs Nick Joos said Hammad, who was a potential starter his Fall, has been suspended from all team activities and he will not return to active status until his legal status has been cleared.
