Woman created 134 hoax reports to Met Police to harass her ex-boyfriend

Published

on

A woman who created hundreds of hoax crime reports to harass her ex-boyfriend and the women he subsequently dated has been convicted of stalking.

During her vendetta, Sandra Danevska sent 134 bogus online reports, resulting in 170 Metropolitan Police Service dispatch logs being created.

Her actions led to her former boyfriend being implicated as a suspect for rape, acid attacks and stabbings – and the two women he went on to date being subjected to a traumatic online campaign.

Danevska, 38 of Winslow Road, Hammersmith, was found guilty on Wednesday, 29 June at Isleworth Crown Court of three counts of stalking involving serious alarm or distress.

She was also convicted of two counts of perverting the course of justice.

The court heard how Danevska and ‘victim 1’ had dated for a number of weeks around 10 years ago.

They had another brief relationship in 2013 before he said he wanted to go back to simply being friends.

Danevska then subjected ‘victim 1’ (now aged 45) and the two women (victim 2, aged 34, and victim 3, aged 37) he later went out with to repeated stalking and harassment.

She set up bogus social media profiles and fake email addresses in her ex-boyfriend’s name to send threatening and malicious messages to other people. She also used various mobiles to make numerous silent calls and send text messages to him.

In 2014, Danevska began sending ‘victim 1’ almost daily emails from unknown accounts commenting on things he had done during the day, leading him to fear he was being followed.

She created 134 hoax online crime reports using the details of 60 different people to implicate him as a suspect in crimes – police attended his home address 42 times and his place of work 10 times in response.

Among the many bogus allegations were claims that various made-up victims had been stabbed, raped or had acid thrown in their faces.

‘Victim 2’ went out with Danevska’s former boyfriend in 2010 and also became the target of her campaign, receiving numerous threatening and malicious text messages and emails.

Danevska set up several social media accounts and email addresses in her name. Again, these email addresses were used to send threatening messages to other people.

‘Victim 3’ had also been a girlfriend of ‘victim 1’ – they had dated between October 2012 and October 2013.

Police attended her address a number of times responding to reports of crime, supposedly created by her.

She also received numerous malicious messages from Danevska via various social media accounts. Some commented on her movements during the day.

A police investigation into the harassment began in 2011 but Danevska had covered her tracks in such a way she couldn’t be identified.

It was only in 2015 that a series of bogus social media profiles were traced to various addresses.

The occupiers of those addresses were employing Danevska as a nanny and police obtained a warrant to search her home in May 2015.

They seized SIM cards, computer equipment and a diary in which she had noted the movements of ‘victim 1’.

In September 2015, she was charged with the offences.

She will be sentenced on Friday, 26 August.

Detective Constable Dean Puzey, of Hammersmith and Fulham CID, said: “This woman’s actions caused her victims unimaginable distress.

“Danevska stalked multiple victims and used social media and the police crime reporting system to make their lives intolerable.

Her ex-boyfriend, an entirely innocent man, found himself a suspect for rape, stabbings and acid attacks – the impact on his life in particular was horrendous.

“Her actions also caused a massive waste of police time. Throughout Danevska’s campaign, 17 of London’s 32 boroughs responded to bogus reports of crime as a result of her malicious calls; her vendetta was a huge drain on police resources.

“Thankfully cases of multiple stalking are very rare and, despite all her efforts to avoid detection, we have finally been able to bring her to justice.”

Gaia Pope no injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death

Published

on

Dorest Police have confirmed that they do not believe another person was invloved within 19-year-old Gaia Pope’s death.

Those arrestes on suspiscion of her murder have been released from police custody but remain under police investigation.

At around 3pm yesterday, Saturday 18 November 2017, specialist search teams discovered the body of a woman near the coastal path and the field where items of her clothing were located on Thursday 16 November near Swanage.

Although the body has yet to be formally identified, officers are confident that it is Gaia and her family is being supported by specially-trained officers.

Detective Superintendent Paul Kessell, of Dorset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team, said: “The post-mortem examination has not identified any injuries to suggest any other person was involved in her death. The cause of death is undetermined pending toxicology.

“The coroner is involved in the oversight of these examinations but at this time this remains an investigation into an unexplained death.

“We would like to take this further opportunity to pass our thoughts to Gaia’s family who we continue to support and who ask for respect of their privacy at this incredibly stressful time.

“Once again I would like to pass our thanks to the public volunteers and partner organisations who have supported this inquiry throughout and have been material in locating Gaia.

“The area where the body was located is likely to remain cordoned off for some time while forensic examinations and searches are concluded.

“Please can I ask that the public no longer attend to assist with searches and that they remain a safe distance from the location. I reiterate this area is steep and slippery in an exposed area close to sea cliffs. The area is covered in dense undergrowth and gorse and can present a hazard. Only specially-trained search and forensic teams are entering the area, assisted by Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service recovery teams.”

Gaia’s family is issuing their thanks to the Find Gaia volunteer group for all their hard work and unwavering support.

Two men aged 19 and 49 and a 71-year-old woman, all from Swanage and known to Gaia, were arrested on suspicion of murder earlier this week and have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

We want to help you but we know you don’t like us being involved

Published

We know you follow this account and want you to see this, We’ve told you previously that we think you are at risk of domestic abuse from your partner. We know you follow this account and we want you to see this.

Lochaber & Skye Police have penned an emotional letter addressed to ‘a young woman in Skye”.

The official Police Scotland account won the best tweeting police account at the UK-wide Police Tweet Awards in 2016 and could just take the 2017 title as next week.

They went on to say “We want to help you and are doing lots with other agencies to try and keep you safe.

“You might not see us, you might not even like us being involved but we are always thinking about how we can help you.”

“Your family and friends have told you they think you are in danger they support you and want you to be safe”.

“We think he’s probably told you, “it won’t happen again”, “I’m sorry”, “I’ll change”, he’s maybe even told you that it’s your fault – IT’S NOT.”

“The violence, threats, degrading comments and controlling behaviour are not the life you need to lead, it can be better.”

“You are not trapped and you are not alone, we can help you get out, your family and friends can help you get out and Scot Women’s Aid can help you get out.

Call us, come to the Police Station, phone someone, speak to local Women’s Aid worker on 01478613365 or 08000271234.”

“There is no excuse for domestic abuse, help is out there.”

Lochaber & Skye Police then went on to thank everyone for the positive response to the domestic abuse appeal.

They told everyone that the meaning behind it was to “reach-out to anyone who may be at risk”.

Hopefully, by sharing this another young lady, lady or even young man or man could be helped from harm.
