A stalker who filed more than 100 hoax police reports against her ex-boyfriend, accusing him of rape, stabbings and acid attacks, has been jailed for five years, Scotland Yard said

Sandra Danevska, 38, a nanny from Hammersmith, west London, subjected two women he subsequently dated to "a traumatic online campaign" and sent 134 bogus online reports against her former partner.

She used the details of 60 different people to implicate her 45-year-old ex-lover in a string of crimes, leading to police attending his home 42 times, the Met said.

Among the many fabricated allegations were claims that various made-up victims had been stabbed, raped or had acid thrown in their faces.

Danevska created scores of fake social media profiles and bombarded her victim's other girlfriends with "threatening" and "malicious" messages, the Met said.

Danevska was found guilty on June 29 at Isleworth Crown Court of three counts of stalking involving serious alarm or distress and of two counts of perverting the course of justice.

She was jailed on Friday, and also issued with a restraining order.

The harassment started in 2011, but it was only in 2015 that the series of hoax social media profiles were traced to addresses linked to Danevska.

Detective Constable Dean Puzey said: "This woman's actions caused her victims unimaginable distress and the sentence reflects the serious nature of her offending.

"Danevska stalked multiple victims and used social media and the police crime reporting system to make their lives intolerable.

"Her ex-boyfriend, an entirely innocent man, found himself a suspect for rape, stabbings and acid attacks - the impact on his life in particular was horrendous."
