A MAN who stalked a woman has been issued with a stalking protection order for five years.

Sebastian Diez, 26, from Station Road in Pulborough carried out acts associated with stalking. 

Brighton Magistrates’ Court ruled that he posed a risk associated with stalking to another person and that there was reasonable cause to believe a protection order was necessary to protect people from that risk.

The order requires Diez to report to police any intimate or sexual relationships he is in within three days of a new relationship emerging, including their names, date of birth and address.

He must also allow police officers to enter his address between 8am and 8pm and provide officers with any mobile, digital or internet-enabled devices for examination and monitoring purposes immediately on request.

Diez has also been prohibited from entering the area of Wandsworth in south London, owning or using more than one mobile phone, posing as another person online and contacting a woman - who the Argus is choosing not to name - in any way.

The order is in place for five years, with failure to comply amounting to a criminal offence.
