A Wiltshire stalker has been jailed after “following and watching” his victim and making “threats to kill” her.

Jamie Suggitt, from Melksham, was sentenced to 34 months in prison at Salisbury Crown Court, on Friday, November 24, after pleading guilty to stalking and threats to kill.

The 34-year-old also pleaded guilty to criminal damage.

Local Crime Investigator Debbie Quayle, of Wiltshire Police, revealed that Suggitt would “watch and follow” his victim, and communicate what he would do if she told anyone.

LCI Quayle praised the bravery of the victim for coming forward and helping officers secure a conviction.

She said: "I would like to thank the bravery of Suggitt's victim for coming forward.

“Without her, we would not have been able to bring the defendant to justice.

“It took a lot of courage for her to work with us and she was afraid of the repercussions.

"Wiltshire Police will not tolerate this type of behaviour, and take any reports of stalking and threats very seriously."

If members of the public experience behaviour that is fixated, obsessive, unwanted, or repeated, they may be a victim of stalking.

This kind of behaviour should be reported to the police.

Alternatively, victims can also contact the National Stalking Helpline for more advice.
