A woman has been charged with stalking a man who was convicted of assaulting her.
Police have confirmed the woman will appear in court to face allegations she stalked 28-year-old Ryan Devaney.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court at a later date.
Devaney was cleared earlier this year at the High Court in Edinburgh of attempting to murder her child at various addresses in Dundee.
He was accused of repeatedly attacking the youngster on various occasions in 2015, but the jury returned a not proven verdict.
Devaney, formerly of Provost Road, admitted five charges of attacking the child’s mother and a man, who also cannot be named for legal reasons, on various occasions in 2015 and 2016. Judge Lord Woolman decided not to jail him and instead ordered him to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work.
The Evening Telegraph revealed in October that Devaney had reported his female victim to police over stalking allegations.
It is understood the complaint relates to social media posts and phone calls regarding Devaney’s court case.
When passing sentence on Devaney at the High Court, Lord Woolman said he could be sent to prison if he did not complete his order.
He said: “If you do not comply with the terms of this order, you will come back to this court and you will face the possibility of being sent to prison.”
The order placed on Devaney — who the court heard had moved to live and work in Swindon — will be reviewed in a year.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Following an allegation of stalking, a woman has been arrested and charged with a relevant offence under the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010, and has been released on an undertaking to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court at a later date.”
