A YOUNG man has been banned from the Leamington estate where he lived with his parents – to keep him away from his ex-partner after he had bombarded her with hundreds of messages.
Krzysiek Skomorowski pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to stalking his former partner Natalia Klimkowsa.
The 23-year-old, of Alexandra Road, Leamington, was sentenced to two years in prison suspended for two years, with a rehabilitation activity, and ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work.
But he was also made subject to a restraining order not to have any contact with Ms Klimkowsa and an exclusion order banning him from the Sydenham estate for five years.
Prosecutor John Evans said Skomorowski and Ms Klimkowsa had been in a relationship for six years, beginning before they moved to this country from Poland in 2016.
The relationship came to an end around April 2017, and she blocked his number so he could not contact her.
But he continued to get in touch by various means, and was prosecuted for harassment, which led to a restraining order being imposed by magistrates in June 2017 when he was given a 12-month community order.
Under the restraining order Skomorowski was prohibited from contacting her in any way or going to her place of work at the M40 Services.
Despite that, he continued to make unwanted contact with her, sending her messages and asking her friends to pass on messages for him.
Skomorowski set up a total of 13 Facebook accounts in different names, including one in Natalia’s name, to get round blocks she had put on his account – and bombarded her with hundreds of messages.
He was arrested in September 2017 but made no comment when he was interviewed, although he gave a statement in which he accepted contacting her via social media, and was bailed.
But within days he sent her a further 150 Facebook messages, as well as phone messages and made attempts to contact her through other people.
Arrested again, he denied having had any further contact, but claimed he had not been served with a copy of the restraining order setting out the prohibitions.
Then in June 2018 Ms Klimkowsa went to the police again after receiving a further spate of messages from him wanting to speak to her and then becoming threatening.
And she made a further complaint in April last year after he had continued to contact her and turned up in his car outside her home on various occasions, as well as once following her in his car as she walked to the shops.
And in April he also damaged the windscreen of her car, for which magistrates gave him another community order in May last year and imposed a further restraining order.
Ian Speed, defending, said after coming to this country they had lived with his parents on the Sydenham estate, but when he had made a trip back to Poland she had moved out.
He pointed out that there had been no further incidents since May last year.
Recorder Jacob Hallam QC imposed the restraining order to cover the Sydenham estate, with electronic monitoring of Skomorowski.
Recorder Hallam told Skomorowski: “If you don’t comply with the terms of the order, you will go to prison.”
