A BROMSGROVE man who stalked and harassed his victim for more than two years has been jailed for 14 months.
Warren Greaves, 52, of Worcester Road pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order and was also found guilty of twice breaching an interim stalking protection order.
The orders were put in place to protect the victim but Greaves repeatedly breached the conditions of the restraining order and the two stalking protection orders, causing much distress to the victim and her family.
Sgt Steve O’Neil, from West Mercia Police, said: “We’re delighted with the result in court and the custodial sentence handed to Greaves.
“His prolonged campaign of stalking and harassment, and the flagrant breaches of the orders put in place, has caused a huge amount of distress to the victim.”
He added the force was grateful to the victim for her full co-operation in the case, adding she deserved recognition for the courage it took to come forward to report Greaves.
“We take offences of this nature very seriously and will always investigate thoroughly and fight to get justice for victims.”
