Good Day. 

a bit of backgroundA friends childrens father has had constant issues with me for the past 6 months or so, making assuations that I am lesbian and that something is going on with myself and the friend, giving her constant ultimatums to stop being friends with me. The  friend and I had a fallout a few months back, to which we cleared up about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I had seen this week that I no longer could see her details on whatsapp so had SMSed her yesterday afternoon to ask if I had been blocked... Later last night, around 10:15PM i got a whatsapp call from a number not in my contacts and ignored the call. I then received a threateining voice message from the friends childrens father stating I should stay away from his woman and his kids or he is warning me that I will feel pain and those around me as well, with lots of vulgar language inbetween all of it.I responded by saying he is pyscho and should get help. Got another voice note after about him knowing of my family and my hidden agendas, and that I should return the keys and remote I have for her pre school (i dont have keys and the remote was programmed to my personal remote). Received a message after as well about myself and my husband egaging in homosexual activities, and I should back off. 

I would like to know are there any chargers I can lay against this person, as I dont feel I want to just take these threats and false accusations lightly and just block the person. He has a history of being verbally abusive and I wont stand for it. 

Appreciate any assistance.
