A woman who was arrested after being trapped inside a chimney had met the California homeowner online and dated him before he recently broke off the relationship, according to the homeowner.
The man told KTBC-TV that he met 30-year-old Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa online and had gone on six dates with her.
“She seemed totally cool until the first flag was her actually being on my roof two weeks ago,” said the man, who did not want to be identified.
Soon after, he said, he broke off the courtship. But she apparently returned to his Thousands Oaks, Calif., roof again early Sunday.
Ventura County firefighters worked for two hours, removing each brick in the chimney to rescue Nunez-Figueroa after she became trapped inside, fire officials said.
