If you have root access.
This will block total access to your server.

### replace xxxx with the ip # you wish to block ###

/sbin/iptables -I INPUT 1 -s xxxx -j DROP

###after the above...run this one..to make them stick###
##otherwise..they will clear at reboot or restart of iptables##

iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables

If his being spam bombed blocking a single ip will do nothing. Chances are, his using many ips to bomb the guy.
