A third victim has come forward to tell her story of the man dubbed the 'Tinder stalker', revealing that she experienced his strange behaviour ten years ago.
She told A Current Affair that she was bombarded with harassing texts and emails from Paul Lambert a decade ago. She was named by the program as Toni Johnston.
She was also disturbed by the resemblance between her and his other victims.
"All of the emotion, fear and memories came flooding back instantly," she told ACA. "Paul's behaviour to both Angela and Ann was reminiscent of what I had experienced ten years ago. What was even worse was... we all looked similar."
The news comes soon after a second victim, Brittany Ann Keil, was revealed to have been stalked by Lambert two years before the recent incident with Angela Jay.
Paul Dennis Lambert met Angela Jay on Tinder but the 28-year-old doctor soon broke things of. The 36-year-old finance worker, then preceded to bombard her with calls and threats of violence which led her to take out an AVO against him, reports The Daily Telegraph.
Some two months later, Lambert broke into Jay’s Port Macquarie home where he reportedly placed her underwear and cable ties on the bed that he planned to use to rape her and then doused the bed and wardrobe in petrol as he waited for her to return home, The Daily Telegraph reported.
When she arrived home at around 6pm, Lambert set upon her, stabbing her 11 times.
Somehow the doctor managed to flee her attacker and made it to her neighbours driveway where she collapsed in a pool of blood as she instructed the neighbour how to stop the bleeding.
By the time police had arrived Lambert had fled, leading to a police chase which ended on the Pacific Highway near Bonville after road spikes managed to stop his car.
Seven News reports that police tazered Lambert when he lunged at police with a knife, when that didn’t deter him they were forced to open fire.
Details have since emerged about Lambert’s history of violence and stalking women, reportedly having been deported from the US for stalking.
Miraculously Jay survived the attack and has since been released from hospital.
