A thug launched a campaign of terror against three women who rejected him, telling one he would chop her head off and threatening another with throwing acid in her face.

Maximus Ronaldson, of Worcester Park, targeted the terrified young women aged between 15 and 22 with more than 200 calls and texts.

The 21-year-old was charged with two counts of harassment and one count of harassment with violence, which he pleaded guilty to on September 15.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Mike Hickman said: “Ronaldson’s actions were excessive to the point where the women were fearing for their lives.

“He displayed disturbing, obsessive behaviour and made threats of extreme violence.

"We will not tolerate this conduct in Surrey and this underlines Surrey Police’s commitment to tacking anyone intent upon harassing or blighting the lives of others.

“The victims were left feeling stressed and anxious and we have been supporting them throughout the investigation.”

Ronaldson has been remanded in custody and will appear at Guildford Crown Court to be sentenced on October 13.
