A woman’s neighbor sent her “dozens and dozens” of messages, including an explicit image of his penis, after he saw her phone number on a package.

Nursing student Eleanor Maddison, 23, ended up going to the police and moving house when she was so saddened by the harassment of Jehad Khan, 46.

He repeatedly asked to pay her for sex, told her he loved her, and saw her as she left her home while licking his windows.

The persecution began in January this year when Eleanor ordered some medical books for her course.

She was on a nurse when the birth came, so it was left with Khan.

Eleanor said: ‘He called me to say he had my package and I agreed to pick it up that evening. I had never met him before and I thanked him and that was it. I realized when I checked the package that my mobile number was on the label. ‘

Later that evening, Khan sent a message to Eleanor, saying, ‘Good night, dear, I’m going to work.

Eleanor said, ‘I ignored the message, but he kept sending love heart emojis and asked if I would go out with him. I told him I had a boyfriend, to try to expose him, but instead he offered me £ 100 to go on a date with him.

‘He was a middle-aged man, in his forties, and I thought he was inappropriate.’

Despite Eleanor giving no indication that she would talk to him, he continued to WhatsApp her.

“He sent dozens and dozens of messages, and they became inappropriate and sexual very quickly,” she said.

‘If I had not gone to the police and then moved home, I was afraid to think about how this could have ended.’

She has now started a petition to prevent phone numbers from being included on the outside of packages.

Eleanor had only lived in the student house in Salford with her friend for a few months when they moved in in October 2020.

“We loved the house and the street seemed okay,” she said.

But after Khan started sending messages to her, she no longer felt happy living there.

“My housemate and I worked on shift shifts, so I was often in the house alone and I didn’t feel safe,” she said.

‘I kept the blinds closed because I did not want him to see me. I did not feel comfortable in my own home. ‘

At first she said she ‘was not so worried’, but Khan then said he was in love with her and then sent a picture of a couple kissing in their underwear.

“I answered and asked him to leave me alone, but he sent me a picture of a man giving a woman oral sex,” she said. ‘It really scared me.

‘He sent maybe fifteen messages at once. His house was opposite mine and when I left my home I saw him staring at me.

On one occasion he was in his bedroom and he knocked on the window to get my attention and then started licking his window while staring at me. It made me really sick.

Then he sent a message offering me £ 200 for sex and saying I was “hot” and “sexy”. I asked him so many times to leave me alone and stop harassing me. ‘

Eleanor confided in family and friends, who urged her to contact police.

She says: ‘I sent him a formal message that if he ever sent me a message again, I would call the police. For almost two weeks I did not hear from him, and I really thought my ordeal was over.

‘But in early February 2021, he sent me a message and sent me my own picture from my WhatsApp with a love heart on it. Then he sent a picture that said, “F *** your bitch.”

‘Next there was a picture of a penis that turned my stomach.

‘I spoke to the police, who said they were aware of Khan, and they arrested him the same day.’

Khan was arrested and appeared before Tameside judges in October 2021.

He was convicted of harassment and sending malicious communications. He received a 12-month community order, a 12-month detention and 20-day rehabilitation along with 240 hours of unpaid work. He also has to pay £ 500 costs.

Eleanor was left too distressed to stay in her home, and she moved to a block of security around the clock. She also changed her phone number.

She says: ‘Before I moved out of the house, he was staring at me in the window. He did not appear to have taken the trial seriously at all. “

Eleanor has now started a signature drive to remove phone numbers from packages.

Eleanor says: ‘I do not want anyone else to go through what I did. This has affected my study and my mental health and my family and friends have been worried about sick.

‘I have spent a lot of money moving home and protecting myself when all this could have been avoided.

‘Taking numbers from packages is a positive step towards keeping women safe.’
