Stephanie Davis’ stalker issued arrest warrant after failing to show for court

An arrest warrant has been issued for the man who stalked former soap star Stephanie Davis after he failed to turn up to court for his sentencing.

Alex Boston, 43, pleaded guilty to the charge of stalking at Liverpool and Knowsley Magistrates Court last month after subjecting the Hollyoaks star, 28, to a "frightening campaign", which reportedly caused her to move house due to panic attacks.

He was due to be sentenced on Wednesday 22 December but failed to turn up to court to be handed his punishment.

The district judge has now issued a warrant to arrest Boston and bring him to court for his sentencing.

OK! has contacted representatives for Stephanie for further comment.

This comes after Stephanie spoke of her "frightening" ordeal, which she said "robbed her of her love for life" and caused her to suffer panic attacks.

The Celebrity Big Brother star also explained that she was forced to move out of her home because of the "distressing campaign of obsessive and unwanted contact".

She went on to post chilling footage of Boston lurking around outside her home after he pleaded guilty to stalking her.

She captioned the clip: "My stalker. I've been quiet on social media for a long time and not as active as I use to be as this has been going on for nearly a year and I've had to stay quiet about it so it didn't affect the case.

"It's caused me so much distress, having to leave my home with Caben and move into my mums with no space for us with my routine changed and everything taken from me once again, my peace of mind, my sanity and my love for life."

Stephanie said she had been forced to "look over my shoulder every minute of the day, panicking wherever I go".

"My anxiety has been that bad. I can't even tell you and not being able to leave the house," she continued.

It was heard that Boston "bombarded" Stephanie for fifteen months between April 2020 and July 2021.

A spokesperson for the Crown Prosecution Service said: "Between April 2020 and July 2021, Boston stalked Ms Davis by bombarding her with messages via social media, delivering letters and gifts, and loitering outside her home address."

Police identified him from one of the letters he'd sent to Stephanie as well as using Instagram.

Police searched his house in Moreton when they found more letters that were for Stephanie.

Ronan Molloy, District Crown Prosecutor for CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: "Stalking and harassment can take many forms, but the common denominator in all such cases is an unhealthy fixation on an individual by the perpetrator.

"Stalking is a serious offence, one which has a significant impact on the victim.

"The CPS is committed to the prosecution of these offences, working closely with our partners to ensure that victims are supported and protected wherever possible.

"Stalking is not a form of flattery and is not something women in public life should simply have to expect. It is a harmful practice, and it will be taken very seriously."
