Hours after a police report surfaced Friday accusing a GOP Senate candidate of stalking her ex-boyfriend, a 911 call related to the incident has emerged.

According to the audio obtained by KGW-TV, pediatric neurosurgeon Monica Wehby, who is challenging incumbent Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), allegedly entered Andrew Miller's house through an unlocked back door without his permission.

"I called and told her I was going to call the police," Miller said in the 911 call. "She said, 'Fine, go ahead, you've ruined my life.'"

Miller added to KGW-TV that he regretted making the police calls, as he and Wehby are still friends. In a Friday statement to Politico, which first reported the situation, Wehby said that her relationship past becoming news was the "cost of challenging the political status quo.”

The allegations arrive as Wehby competed in a debate Friday afternoon that apparently ended on an odd note. According to the Oregonian, she rushed to leave the Portland hotel where the event was held, using a wall of aides and workers to prevent the media from following her.

"I don't know what to think ... but it was bizarre," state Rep. Jason Conger (R), who is running as her primary challenger, told the Oregonian.
