A 40-YEAR-OLD man has been banned from Worcester for two years after magistrates handed him a criminal behaviour order (CBO).

Leo Kenny, of no fixed address, was given the order at Worcester Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, January 6 for using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, with intent to cause fear of, or to provoke unlawful violence. 

He has previously been verbally aggressive and disorderly when drinking in and around Worcester city centre.

Superintendent Kevin Purcell, policing commander for South Worcestershire, said: "This is another example of where we wisely use our full range of powers to ensure that we impact on those that are causing real harm to the community.

"This man through his alcohol-fuelled behaviour repeatedly committed crimes.

"We welcome the support of partners and the courts in ensuring that he is prevented from doing so in Worcester.

"We work hard with our partners to offer those in need of support and help.

"We will, however, continue to do all we can to disrupt, stop and sanction those, who despite this help, cause crimes through their anti-social behaviour."

The CBO means Kenny is banned from entering the city of Worcester. The exact exclusion area is defined in the map shown above.

He is also ordered not to behave in an aggressive, intimidating or threatening manner towards any person, or in the sight of any person, who is caused or who is likely to be caused alarm, harassment or distress. This prohibition applies to Kenny wherever he is in England and Wales.

The order will last two years.
