A boyfriend who admitted harassing his ex-lover has been spared jail after their ‘very tumultuous’ relationship ended with her ‘defecating’ on his doorstep.

Deka Ahmed, 41, took a restraining order out against Silvestrs Rullis, 28, after accusing him of attacking her at Fulham Broadway Station as well as at her home in west London. 

Rullis breached the restraining order by visiting her home three times.

He also invited Ahmed round to his luxury apartment in Harrington Gardens, South Kensington, during the coronavirus lockdown, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.   

Rullis has since admitted three counts of harassment for breaching the restraining order and one of criminal damage by breaking her window.

He was sentenced to four weeks jail suspended for 18 months as well as 20 days rehabilitation activity.

Ahmed visited Rullis on April 15 where the couple had several drinks before the mood turned sour, the court previously heard.

Ahmed attacked her host and smashed his furniture, including a glass cabinet, before whipping his flatmate with a belt 15 times.

She was eventually bundled outside, only for the victim’s flatmate to see her empty her bowels on the doorstep.

Ahmed was initially given a suspended sentence in June but breached its terms and was jailed for five months on 21 September.

Wajeed Chaudhry, prosecuting, said: ‘[Rullis] was charged with breaches of restraining order on January 9 this year.

‘He went to the complainant’s home and posted items which caused damage to the inside.

‘Firstly, the breach occurred within four months of the imposition of the orders.

‘On 15 April police were called to the defendant’s flat, he had let the victim into his place, he was drinking with her, police were called and the breach was noted.’

‘On April 21 he arrived outside the home address of the victim and Ms Ahmed’s daughter had answered the door. She opened it and called the police, by the time they arrived he had left.

‘On 22 April the victim’s daughter calls the police to say that this defendant was back outside the flat and that they had.

‘No arrest was made until 22 April.

‘He said he didn’t realise they were breaches and that the complainant had been contacting him.’

Sundeep Pankhania, defending, said: ‘This is a very tumultuous relationship that is the fault of both.

‘Ms Ahmed was made subject to a restraining order in relation to the glassing of Mr Rullis for which she received a custodial sentence.

‘It’s her daughter who calls the police simply because Mr Rullis is there, and she knows he’s not allowed to be there

‘A relationship that should not be allowed to continue and hopefully this has confirmed that.’

Rullis has been in custody for 16 weeks and three days, the court heard.

Magistrates’ bench chair Alexia Featherstone-Howe told Rullis: ‘You went to her address three times and you went there when you were on bail.

‘One time she came to yours, yes, these are complex issues.

‘We understand that this is a troubled relationship.

‘You have spent an enormous amount of time in custody on remand.

‘You must complete a 20 days rehabilitation activity requirement to help you understand how to deal with relationships that must end.’ 

Rullis, now of Daventry Street, Marylebone, admitted three charges of harassment and criminal damage.

Two further charges of assault and a charge of theft for stealing her doorbell were withdrawn. 

Ms Featherstone-Howe sentenced Rullis to four weeks jail suspended for 18 months and made him an indefinite restraining order from contacting Ahmed. 

He was also ordered to complete 20 days rehabilitation activity requirement.

Ahmed, of Tamworth Street, Fulham, had denied the charges against her but was convicted of criminal damage and two counts of assault by beating.
