A STALKER has been remanded in custody after attacking a woman and repeatedly sending her threatening text messages and turning up at her home.

Leszek Przewdziecki entered guilty pleas to three counts of assault by beating and one count of stalking involving fear of violence when he appeared before magistrates in Kidderminster in June.

The court heard from prosecutor Melanie Winterflood that the 40-year-old had assaulted a woman by beating in Hereford between January 20 and March 31, on June 27, and between May 1 and 31.


He had also stalked the same woman in Hereford between June 1 and 30, sending her numerous abusive and threatening text messages and turning up at her home on numerous occasions, and causing her to fear on at least two occasions that violence would be used against her.

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report to be carried out by the probation service and Przewdziecki, who is of no fixed address, was remanded in custody.

He will appear before magistrates in Redditch for sentencing on July 24.
