A teenager who terrorised residents in Crewe has been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order banning him from certain areas of the town for five years.
Jordan Everall, 18, from Claughton Avenue, had been committing a string of anti-social behaviour over a prolonged period of time, including intimidation and criminal damage. The issue came to a head in February 2017 with an assault on a 47-year-old man in Brookhouse Lane. On 23 June Everall was convicted at Crewe Magistrates of assault by beating and was sentenced to 20 weeks in prison and handed a Criminal Behaviour Order.
The Criminal Behaviour Order prevents Everall from entering areas including Salisbury Close and Ursuline Way, Brookhouse Estate, including Pebblebrook Park, as well as all alleyways to and from Claughton Avenue unless prior permission has been the local inspector.
He is also prohibited from encouraging others to use foul, abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening, disorderly or intimidating language or behaviour towards any person in a public place, this include building the public has access to.
He is also prohibited from associating with two named people and from acting in any anti-social manner that is likely to cause alarm, harassment or distress to any person. He also has to engage with the Navigate Team and local policing unit.
Councillor Paul Bates, Cabinet member for Finance and Communities said: “His behaviour impacted on members of the public. I hope this Criminal Behaviour Order will give this him the boundaries he needs to improve his behaviour.”
Insp Glyn Leech, from Crewe Local Policing Unit, added: “Everall had been causing a misery for residents for some time, and thanks to help from the public and our partners we were able to secure a criminal Behavour Order to prevent further distress in the community. I hope this sends a strong message that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in our towns and, working closely with our partners, we will take robust action against those committing anti-social behaviour.”
The police action and successful application for the criminal behaviour order is part of an ongoing joint initiative between police and Cheshire East Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Team to tackle anti-social behaviour committed by young people.
