Stephen King banned from begging in Stroud town centre

A STROUD man has received an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction following his persistent nuisance behaviour.

Stephen King was served with a civil Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI) last Thursday (29 September).

This followed numerous reports to Stroud police from members of public and businesses in the town centre that King was stealing, aggressively begging and persistently harassing members of the public.

The successful case was brought against King by the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Paul Cruise said: “Whether working, living or visiting the area, our team is committed to ensuring that everyone is safe and free from anti-social behaviour, harassment and crime.

“This injunction places considerable conditions onto an individual who has relentlessly targeted both individuals and businesses within Stroud Town Centre and beyond.

“We will take any breaches of these conditions extremely seriously.”

Stroud City Safe Manager Steve Lindsay said: “Stephen King has been causing a nuisance to members of the public and businesses of Stroud town centre.

“He has received warnings, however continued to behave in a way which causes harassment, alarm and distress.

“This injunction not only protects the public and businesses within the city, but also shows that these types of behaviour will not be tolerated, and the Police and civil courts will deal with persistent offenders”

The civil injunction order imposed by the courts forbids King from:

1. Engaging in conduct which causes or is capable of causing alarm or harassment or distress to any person within the town of Stroud, Gloucestershire.

2. Using or threatening to use violence against any person in Stroud, Gloucestershire.

3. Begging at any time in Stroud, Gloucestershire (this includes but is not limited to asking for money and/or cigarettes and/or rizlas and/or food). 

4. Approaching any person within the town of Stroud with any items for sale.
