Woman accused of stalking BBC DJ ‘bombarded him with death threats and said ‘you will die” – The Sun

A WOMAN accused of stalking a BBC DJ is said to have bombarded him with death threats.

Sarah Jayne Rook, 43, is also said to have racially abused Gilles Peterson’s wife and scaled scaffolding outside his home.


She is said to have hit his car with a pole at his house in Stoke Newington, North London.

Rook is also said to have hurled death threats outside his work studios and allegedly called Mr Peterson's wife Atsuko a 'Hiroshima b***h' when she refused to open the door to her at the couple's north London home on 18 February.

Rook screamed 'You will die' at Mr Peterson as he left BBC Broadcasting House in Portland Place, central London on 21 March, prosecutors claim.

Two days later Rook stood outside the record label owner's north London home shouting 'c**t', 'rapist,' and 'paedophile,' it was said.

She allegedly attended the home Mr Peterson shared with his wife in Stoke Newington, posing as a charity worker and attacked his car with a pole.

Rook pinned a torn up photograph of the DJ's face to his car windscreen before leaving a Joker playing card followed by an Ace of Clubs.

'YOU WILL DIE'

She is charged with stalking Mr Peterson while subject to bail conditions, preventing her from contacting the Frenchman, in a months-long campaign.

Rook is also accused of harassing the Radio 6 DJ – born Gilles Jerome Moehrle in Caen in 1964 – and his wife, Atsuko, 53, between 15 February and 16 March.

She allegedly returned to Mr Peterson's family home while on bail and banged on his window while he watched terrified from behind his blinds.

The traumatised DJ watched as Rook clambered onto scaffolding and began climbing up the outside of his house, the court heard.

She remained there until police arrived and told her to leave.

Rook is also accused of racially abusing a police officer who arrested her.

French DJ Mr Peterson, 55, was awarded an MBE in 2004 and founded the Acid Jazz record label.

He plays soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin and jazz on his Radio 6 show.

Rook, who denied stalking, tried to change her plea yesterday before storming out of the dock.

District Judge Louisa Cieciora refused to accept. Trial continues.
