Lee Baker/Tiffany Aching, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted of stalking at Bournemouth Crown Court in 2017. Baker/Aching escaped a prison sentence and was fined £200 and ordered to pay £100 compensation to the victim. A restraining order was also issued.

Baker/Aching, 47, was then subsequently convicted at Poole Magistrates’ Court in December 2018 on three counts of breaching the restraining order and stalking between July 2017 and September 2018, i.e. just months after  conviction.

Having failed to attend court for the trial, a warrant for Baker/Aching’s arrest was issued.

Police in Leicestershire had been searching for Baker/Aching as the defendant hadn’t been seen since the weekend of November 16 and 17. In an appeal with no warning for the public regarding Baker/Aching’s repeated stalking, Avon & Somerset police described the offender as “6ft 2ins, big build with hazel brown eyes and dark red hair” and as having “recently transitioned”. The appeal was widely shared on social media. 

A spokesperson from Leicester police issued the somewhat bizarre obfuscatory statement: “Although Tiffany identifies as a woman she may be presenting as a man and wearing men’s clothing, including a black baseball cap. Similarly, when rapist Lisa Hauxwell was on the run, The Derby Telegraph‘s headline read “Have you seen missing woman spotted in Derbyshire dressed as a man?” Similar obfuscation was evident when a Leeds police officer posted this tweet  saying “Leeds Woman Lisa Lacey also has used male identity Craig John Hauxwell.”

It is unknown whether the victim was male or female, although the majority of offences of this type are perpetrated by males against females, often after a relationship has ended.

Baker/Aching’s Twitter account consists mostly of photos of women in underwear, plus posting photos from female toilets, and reporting women for daring to question gender ideology. In this post Baker/Aching cheers for trans activist Giuliana Kendal who tried and failed to silence women by bringing a private prosecution against two feminists for standing up to male bullying.
