Man jailed after making hundreds of threatening calls to woman

A man who bombarded a woman with hundreds of threatening phone calls has been sent to jail.

Craig Bacon called the victim on a daily basis, causing her to feel scared for her safety. On most of the calls she answered he was aggressive and threatened her with violence.

An investigation was launched after she came forward and reported the threats to the police.

He was jailed for 16 months when he was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday (23 November 2022).

Chief Inspector Leigh Sanders, from Nottinghamshire Police’s Public Protection team, said: “Keeping women safe and supporting victims of this kind of unacceptable behaviour are priorities for the force.

“We treat reports of this nature incredibly seriously, listen to victims and will always do our very best to investigate and seek justice for them.

“I’d like to commend this woman for her bravery in coming forward and I hope it brings her some comfort that Bacon is now behind bars.”

Nottinghamshire Police urges victims of harassment, their friends and family to seek help and report it to the police at the earliest opportunity. Officers and partner organisations will listen to and support victims you in any way they can.
