Cambridge man stalked shop worker and stared at her while she worked

A man who stalked a shop worker and stared intently at her while she worked has been jailed.

Sammy Trujilo, 33, repeatedly entered the store in Cambridge where the victim worked and pretended to look at products while staring over at her.

The victim would have to go to the stockroom in the back of the shop to avoid him.

On one occasion, Trujilo even followed her to another shop while she was on her lunch break and to a bar in the city when she was having a drink with friends.

Trujilo, of Foster Road, Cambridge, was already the subject of a sexual harm prevention order, forbidding him from following or photographing any woman in public, unless a friend or relative.

He pleaded guilty to stalking and breach of a sexual harm prevention order and was sentenced to two years and seven months in prison at Cambridge Crown Court on Thursday (August 17).

Detective Constable Decca Riondino said: “Stalking is a horrendous crime, which leaves victims feeling frightened, distressed and threatened.

“I would like to take this opportunity to praise the victim for her courage and bravery in reporting this to the police and hope it will encourage others to report these incidents.

“I am pleased Trujilo is now behind bars where he belongs.”
