Ballasalla man awaits sentencing for stalking woman

He showered victim with gifts including chocolates and wine

A Ballasalla man's been bailed as he awaits sentencing for stalking a woman in the south of the Island.

Twenty-nine-year-old Charles Tyrer of Cobbold Place appeared before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes through a video link from prison at Douglas Courthouse.

At an earlier hearing, he admitted a single count of conduct amounting to harassment between June and July this year.

Tyrer ignored the woman's rejection as he showered her with gifts including chocolates, wine and pizza.

Tyrer visited the woman's home uninvited on a number of occasions as well as her workplace.

His victim called police when she came home one morning after staying with a friend and found him in her kitchen smoking a cigar and rearranging her furniture as he got ready to redecorate.

Mrs Hughes bailed him in the sum of £500, to live at Tromode House on condition he doesn't enter Station Road in Port Erin or Glen Road in Colby, as well as a condition he doesn't contact his victim.

He'll appear in court again on 12 October for sentencing.
