A man from New Whittington has been given an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) for a number of public order incidents.

Josh Healey, 18, of Chesterfield Avenue, New Whittington, was given the two year court order by magistrates until July 17, 2014.

He is banned from:

Causing harassment, alarm or distress to anyone he doesn’t live with in the borough of Chesterfield.

Entering certain parts of the town centre, as defined on a map by magistrates, including the area around The Yards, between South Street, New Beetwell Street, Low Pavement and The Pavements shopping centre.

Remaining on any commercial, public or private premises if asked to leave by the occupier owner

Directing any object towards any motor vehicle.

Officers from the Chesterfield areas Safer Neighbourhood policing teams worked together with the Chesterfield Community Safety Partnership to apply for the order.

Police can arrest Healey if he is found breaching the ASBO, and he would be brought before the court and could face jail.

Sgt Les Rawson of the Chesterfield Community Safety Partnership said: “Mr Healey’s behaviour has had a negative effect on other residents and those around him.

“Abusive or offensive behaviour towards others won’t be tolerated and this successful application is another example of effective partnership work between the police and partner agencies.”

Sgt Les Rawson added: “We hope that this will have a positive outcome for members of the community but also for Mr Healey himself to try and improve his own behaviour.”

Healey was also sentenced to a 12 month training and detention order.

Anyone who sees Healey breaching the conditions of the ASBO can report it to Derbyshire police by calling 101, the non-emergency number, or Chesterfield Borough Council on 01246 345345. In an emergency dial 999.
