( I didn't know this at the time) Somehow word got out that she was there, and PO'S showed up looking for her. I was not present at the time, but my GF was. My GF answered the door, and confirmed that their suspect was in my apt. Suspect told officers that she was coming out to surrender. PO asked my girlfriend for permission to search, which my GF denied b/c of my absence. PO procceeded to push my GF out of the way to take custody of suspect.
