A Tinder user has told how her love match trashed her flat and filled her shoes with baked beans when she dumped him after just four weeks’ dating. 

Alisha Moy matched with Jordan Cobbold on the dating app, but within a month she decided to end the relationship.  

In revenge, ‘needy’ 21-year-old Cobbold used a key to sneak into her flat while she was at work.

Alisha Moy, 20, from Ipswich, Suffolk matched last year with Jordan Cobbold, 21, shortly after she had left home and moved into a new flat

After four weeks, Ms Moy told Cubbold, pictured, that their relationship was over

Ms Moy returned home to find her footwear filled with beans and tinned spaghetti, as well as damaged walls, furniture, clothes and brand new electrical appliances.

The 20-year-old said: ‘This was my first home and Jordan completely violated it. Thanks to him I suffer with trust issues now. I despise him.’

Ms Moy moved out of the family home and into her first flat, in Ipswich, Suffolk, in January last year.

She said: ‘I was single at the time and had been using Tinder on and off for a while.

‘I was looking for a long term relationship but, until Jordan, I’d never met up with any of my matches and really just used Tinder to chat with old school friends.

‘But I wanted to meet Jordan in person, and after we’d been chatting for a while I invited him round to my place.

‘I was attracted to him – he dressed well and looked like he worked out.’

Ms Moy said she had only been seeing Cobbold a couple of weeks when he suggested taking the spare key to her flat.

She said: ‘It was on the kitchen worktop. He thought it would be nice if he let himself in while I was at work so he’d be there when I got home.

‘I didn’t really get the chance to say no – so then he had a key to my flat. It was really playing on my mind and I remember calling my mum because I was worried about it.’

He also smeared the walls of the flat with bean juice and various other condiments

Cubbold also cut the cords of several of Ms Moy’s appliances as well as covering electrical equipment in cooking sauce

Despite her initial attraction to Cobbold, Ms Moy soon realised their relationship was heading nowhere.

She said: ‘Things turned weird. We’d be watching a film and he’d just burst into tears for no reason. I’d ask him what the problem was, but he’d just ignore me.

‘Then, when we got together, he started saying stuff like “this is the stage of the relationship when everything starts going wrong”.

‘We’d only been seeing each other a matter of weeks! It was so confusing, I couldn’t understand why he was being so intense and needy.’

Ms Moy said she sent Cobbold a message to tell him their assignation was at an end.  

In response, Ms Moy claimed Cobbold ‘blocked her’. She thought this was proof he understood their relationship was over. 

She said: ‘The next morning I went to work for 8am and didn’t get home until 6pm.

‘I knew something was wrong as soon as I walked in the hallway – I usually leave all the interior doors open, but someone had closed them all.

‘I opened my living room door and just burst into tears at the sight in front of me.

‘He’d pulled my shoes out of the little cloakroom and poured beans and spaghetti in there.

‘There were condiments splattered all over the walls and cooking sauce poured all over my vacuum cleaner.’

Ms Moy said she walked through to her kitchen where she found brand new appliances had had their cables cut through.

Cubbold was ordered to pay Ms Moy £1,750 in compensation and £425 in court costs, and was given a five-year restraining order

She said her father had given her some cash for her birthday and she used the money to buy some kitchen equipment such as a kettle and a microwave. 

She said:  ‘Leads for the kettle, microwave and coffee maker had been cut through. They’d literally only been in there for a day. I hadn’t even used the microwave.

‘The fridge freezer had been turned off and cooking oil poured all over the place.’

In her bedroom, Ms Moy found her make-up trashed, shower gel poured in her drawers, plus more appliances and phone chargers with severed cables.

The bathroom was strewn with red bubble bath and a shoe had been chucked down the toilet.’

She said she was in tears when she rang her mother who then contacted the police on her behalf.  

When police arrived she said she believed Cobbold was responsible and he was arrested. 

Her flat required intensive cleaning while some of the electrical equipment had to be dumped. 

She said the damage caused by her former partner cost an estimated £1,250. 

She said: ‘It was heartbreaking. It took months before I felt safe again.’

Ms Moy said she has deleted Tinder from her phone and has since met a new man. 

Cobbold appeared at Ipswich Crown Court in January after previously pleading guilty to criminal damage and one count of burglary after he took a necklace which he had given Ms Moy on her birthday.

He got a two-year community order, with 30 rehabilitation activity days and 180 hours of unpaid work.

He was also ordered to pay Ms Moy £1,750 in compensation and £425 in court costs, and was given a five-year restraining order.
