A man who breached a restraining order has been jailed for 12 months.
Police were called to an address in Seaford Road, Crawley, on 11 April after receiving a report of a civil dispute involving two people.
Officers attended and discovered one of the occupants was Maciej Grzebieniak, 31, of no fixed address.
He had been given a five-year restraining order in February 2021 with a single condition not to contact a woman known to him – this was the other person present at the address.
Grzebieniak was subsequently arrested and charged with breaching a restraining order.
He pleaded guilty and at Lewes Crown Court on 11 May, he was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment.
Investigating officer, PC Michael East, said: “Restraining orders are imposed by the courts to protect victims. Grzebieniak was warned that failing to comply with his restraining order could land him in prison, and this is exactly what has happened.
“His arrest followed a report from a concerned member of public, and I’d like to remind everyone to be vigilant and contact police if you think someone may be in danger.”
