A serial cyber stalker — who changed his name after being caught terrorising nearly twenty women online — has finally received an immediate jail term, after sending scores more scary messages to five more female victims. In Perth Magistrates Court on Monday, Tom Lewandowski, 36, learned his fate after he admitted his guilt to stalking charges between November 2021 and July 2022. Those were committed while he was serving a suspended prison term for a string of other similar offences — under a different name. That last conviction was entered against Adam Rybicki. A magistrate then described him as “the boogie man” because of his relentless pursuit of his victims. However, he then received a 16 month-suspended jail term, after a psychological report said he was unlikely to re-offend because he didn’t want to be in prison. He walked out of jail on the day of that sentencing. But while his name might have then changed, the intimidating language, threats of harm and menacing behaviour began again in late 2021 — and left five more women fearing for their safety. Lewandowski, as he now is, has spent more than a year in prison awaiting his sentence. On Monday it came — a total of two and half years behind bars. Magistrate Raelene Johnston was told that in late 2021, Lewandowski matched one woman on a dating app, and maintained contact for several months. Eventually, Lewandowski disclosed his previous name, and the woman cut off contact. It was then he began bombarding her with phone calls, messages, and threats to harm himself. After ignoring those messages, she then got another — a photo of her house saying: “That’s what the garden at your house looks like” And then another, claiming he had unprotected sex with eight other women. Another woman reported being forced to shut down her business Facebook account after Lewandowski bombarded her with abusive messages after they had initially matched on Tinder When the woman told him she was not interested, he called her a “useless c. . .” and that he “knew where she lived”. Yet another, contacted through Tinder, was subjected to him threatening to harm himself. And another victim, who had with consent sent nude pictures of herself on SnapChat, was threatened with crude messages — and had her own pictures sent back to her. Magistrate Johnston began her sentencing by referencing the last one, saying it could be considered “merciful”. As for his new victims, she said, Lewandowski had shown no mercy. “At any sense of rejection, you acted in a manner that was gravely concerning,” the magistrate said. “You changed your name for your benefit — and while the offences may be relatively short-lived, the effects of stalking can have long-lasting effects. “And you still seem to be minimising the fear (you caused), and do not appreciate the seriousness of your offences.” Magistrate Johnstone said reports concluded Lewandowski had a borderline personality disorder, and a narcissistic disorder — which gave him “grandiose beliefs and a lack of empathy”. She also questioned prosecutors as to why they had downgraded Lewandowski’s new charges from one that originally attracted an eight-year maximum jail term to one with a maximum of 12 months. Lewandowski was jailed for a total of 30 months, with eligibility for parole. He was also fined for possession of drugs and a weapon.
