A Warren police officer entered a plea of not guilty Friday to charges of domestic cyberstalking and cyberharassment.

The judge ordered Randy Bryant to have no contact with his alleged victim, a 44-year-old Warren woman, and he was released on $1,000 personal recognizance.

No details of the alleged crime were read during the hearing, which lasted less than a minute. But they are spelled out in court documents obtained by NBC 10 News.

According to the documents, the alleged victim told investigators that she and Bryant had been dating "on and off" for two-and-a-half years.

The woman apparently suspected that Bryant was married and when she threatened to go to his home, Bryant allegedly texted "Try it ur (sic) see what happens," followed by another text message in which he used profanity.

The victim showed the threatening messages to detectives and filed charges against Bryant.

Bryant had nothing to say after court.

His next hearing was scheduled for May 26.
