ASBO issued for abusive behaviour
Published by Nicola Mileham for Stockport Homes in Local Government and also in Communities, Housing
David Eccles, aged 16, from Adswood has been made the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO). The ASBO secured by Stockport Homes, in partnership with Greater Manchester Police, applies to the whole of England and Wales and lasts until 27 July 2014. If he breaks his ASBO he could face a fine or be sent to a detention centre for up to five years.
The ASBO was granted because he:
- Behaved in a way which caused or was likely to cause, harassment alarm or distress to a person, not of the same household as himself.
- Tried to enter another residents’ front door. When that door was shut to prevent him from entering, he began kicking the door and shouted abuse.
- Entered another residents’ property through an open door, went into the living room and shouted abuse at them and then spat in the residents face.
- Pushed a female resident of Adswood to the floor on Neston Grove, Adswood.
- Grabbed the son of the resident by the throat, then threw him to the ground and kicked him twice in his back, only to be stopped by another male.
- Threatened a female resident by saying “I’m going to smash your windows and petrol bomb your house”.
The ASBO states that he must not: by himself or by instructing, encouraging or inciting any other person:
- Act in an anti-social manner which is likely to cause harassment alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as himself.
- Use abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in a public place or in any place to which the public has access.
- Throw any missiles against any person, property or vehicle.
- Engage in activity causing or likely to cause any persons to fear for their personal safety or that of their property or personal possessions.
- Approach physically, communicate with or otherwise contact directly or through another person / media / electronic device, any of the named witness on the order.
If you see David acting in an anti-social manner or doing anything he is prohibited from doing, please report this immediately to Greater Manchester Police on 101 or Stockport Homes on 0161 218 1498.
Roger Phillips, Chair of Stockport Homes’ Board said, “This is another example of Stockport Homes taking positive action to stamp out ASB on its estates. ASB has a serious negative impact on residents’ lives and Stockport Homes always strive to ensure residents can live in peace without fear of ASB.”
