A South Australian man who was charged with stalking a woman he met through a dating app has been arrested for the second time this week and charged with the same offence.
Sean Ian Bruce Flintoff, 35, was first charged with one count of stalking and property damage earlier this week over incidents that allegedly happened between August 2 and August 10 at Black Forest, according to court documents.
SA Police alleged the first woman reported Flintoff, who she’d met on Tinder, to police on Monday and claimed to have “feared for her safety” because he allegedly began to stalk her.
Police allege they attended his Andrews Farm home, in Adelaide’s north, the following day and found different types of evidence, including mail in different women’s names.
After Flintoff appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Wednesday, a second woman came forward to police, claiming she too was a victim of stalking after meeting the accused on social media in January.
According to police, he had “put her in fear of her safety”.
According to court documents, police will allege Flintoff stalked the second woman between March 1 and August 11 this year at Elizabeth Downs.
SA Police said the second woman came forward after seeing publicly released information relating to the defendant.
Flintoff was again arrested and charged with another count of stalking as well as breaching his bail conditions.
He was refused police bail and was due to appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Friday morning.
During his first court appearance earlier this week, Flintoff was granted bail.
Under those conditions he must not contact or communicate either directly or indirectly with the first woman, or come within 100m of her.
SA Police urge anyone with information to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
