Obsessed woman will now be sentenced for harrassing Old Trafford hero.
The woman who was found guilty of stalking manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has been arrested after she fled the court.
Susanne Ibru walked out of Macclesfield Magistrates after being told she could not cross-examine Rio’s wife.
Rebecca Ferdinand was excused from giving evidence following the birth of the couple’s daughter.
Ibru told the judge she wanted to question Mrs Ferdinand and, when she was told she could not, she walked out of court and failed to return.
The 38-year-old was still convicted in her absence on Monday but was arrested in Warrington a day later and will now appear in court on this charge at a later date.
District Judge Nicholas Sanders had issued a warrant so Ibru, of Newcastle, could be brought back and sentenced.
Ibru denied harassing the Ferdinand family despite turning up at their home in Alderley Edge three times in the space of four months in 2010.
Giving his verdict, Judge Sanders said: “It is without question that it did amount to harassment of Mr and Mrs Ferdinand.
“Miss Ibru, I suspect, will say she didn’t know but she certainly should have done.”
