A violent stalker turned at estranged wife’s home in Peterborough every day after their 10-year long relationship ended in July last year. Despite her telling him to leave her alone, Rytis Lisauskas,32, would hang around for hours at a time and, on a couple of occasions, also followed the victim to a bus stop.

His fixation intensified and in September he arrived at the victim’s home and smashed a window.

A few days later, he returned, and threw stones at another window.

Lisauskas, from Huntingdon but of no fixed abode, was arrested and it emerged he had also carried out a string of violent attacks on the victim last year, where he had punched her in the head and pushed her.

Despite being released on bail prohibiting him from going to the victim’s address, police were called again the following month after he tampered with CCTV cameras at the property.

Rytis Lisauskas, 32, had been turning up at the victim’s home in Peterborough every day since their decade-long relationship ended in July last year.

After ripping the camera from a wall, he smashed his way inside while the terrified victim barricaded herself in a bedroom with her children as he stole items which he claimed belonged to him.

On Friday (17 May) at Cambridge Crown Court, Lisauskas was sentenced to three years and two months in prison, after pleading guilty to stalking, burglary, criminal damage, assault by beating and controlling and coercive behaviour.

DC Emily Richardson, who investigated, said: “The victim and her family have gone through a traumatic experience because of Lisauskas’ appalling and selfish behaviour.

“No one should live in fear, especially in their own home. Stalking can be a terrifying and can escalate quickly.

“We would encourage anyone who fears they may be being stalked or harassed to get in touch. We’re here for victims 24/7 and will support them, as well as do all we can to bring offenders to justice.”
