Man sentenced for stalking and harassment in Hoddesdon
Main article content
A man who bombarded his ex-partner with hundreds of unwanted calls and stalked her has been sentenced to two years and four months imprisonment.
Keven Ibrahim-Hills, aged 39, of Frampton Park Road in London, was given the sentence for stalking, breaching his non-molestation order and common assault at St Albans Crown Court on Friday (3 March).
The court heard that Ibrahim-Hills called his victim 60 times on 21 April and over 400 times between 26 September and 17 October last year, despite a non-molestation order being in place since 2 August for her safety. On 4 October last year, Ibrahim-Hills grabbed her phone outside some shops in Stansted Road and tried to unlock it. He then got into her car, despite her telling him to get out, and pulled the handbrake up causing her car to swerve out of control.
He was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment for stalking and 28 months for breaching his non-molestation order, to run concurrently. He was also sentenced to four months imprisonment, to run concurrently, for common assault for threatening his ex-partner with a knife, which he had concealed under his top, on Wednesday 13 April, 2022.
HHJ Michael Roques said his behaviour following the non-molestation order was so concerning that he said he had to be remanded in custody.
Investigator Jayne Atkin from the Domestic Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit said: “He showed no regard for his non-molestation order, which was put in place to protect his victim. His erratic and obsessive behaviour has had a devastating effect on his victim who wanted to get on with her life without finding Ibrahim-Hills there harassing and stalking her every move. These behaviours can escalate putting victims at risk of serious risk of harm, so we are pleased he has been sent to prison.”
