A man was jailed after he was found guilty of harassing his former girlfriend by hiding under her bed.
Kevin Rainbow, 28, of Deptford, London, England, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for stalking his former girlfriend.
Mr. Rainbow wanted to get back with his former girlfriend, with whom he has two children. Rainbow had lived with his former girlfriend for five years, but they broke up after he allegedly became increasingly abusive and controlling.
He began stalking the 31-year-old woman. After Rainbow would not stop bothering the woman, she took out an order of protection against him.
Despite that, Rainbow continued to stalk her. One day, when the woman came to her apartment, she saw that her children’s father was in his car, which he parked in her parents’ driveway in Sussex.
The woman’s father came to her assistance and called police, but by the time they arrived, Rainbow was nowhere to be found.
As officers were taking statements from the family, they heard a noise from an upstairs bedroom and Rainbow was found hiding under the woman’s bed.
Rainbow was charged with harassment, common assault and criminal damage. “I consider you to be a dangerous individual and suggest a high risk of further damage, both physical and emotional, to your former partner. It is clear that you do not accept the end of the relationship,” Judge Barnes said.
In addition to the prison sentence, the judge also imposed a restraining order, indefinitely banning Rainbow from contacting his former girlfriend or her family except through lawyers on issues regarding access to his two children.
