Man fined after stalking ex and biting her in the back

A GLADSTONE woman screamed out in pain when her ex-boyfriend tracked her down, held her against her will and bit into her back.

Jeremy Edward Read just couldn't let go. On April 27, he wouldn't stop texting and calling his ex-girlfriend, who told him she was busy fishing and didn't want to talk.

Read went to every boat ramp in Gladstone until he found her at the one near the power station.

Read picked up his ex-girlfriend and carried her towards his car against her will.

As the woman struggled to break free, Read held her in a bear hug and bit down into her back. She screamed out in pain.

Police prosecutor Sean Franklin described the event as a "frightening offence" when the 21-year-old pleaded guilty to one charge of bodily harm in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday..

Read was ordered to pay $1000 in compensation to his ex-girlfriend.

He was put on probation for two years with no conviction recorded.
