A YOUTH from Brent has been handed an Asbo after causing anti-social behaviour in Brent.
Shane Ridout was handed the anti-social behaviour order from officers from Brent’s Integrated Community Safety Team at North West London Youth Court on Tuesday last week.
The 17-year-old from Wembley has been prohibited from acting in any public place in Brent while alone or in a group of two or more persons in a manner which causes or is likely to cause any person to fear for their safety.
The order will last for two years.
Sergeant Neil Tulloch from Wembley Central Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “Here at Wembley Central Safer Neighbourhood Team we often have issues with anti-social behaviour, so it is always good to see how various departments can work together to obtain such positive results.
“This individual has committed a lot of anti social behaviour in and around the Wembley Central ward area and mainly while in company of other youths. Now he faces being arrested for causing anti-social behaviour in the borough of Brent, one hopes this will deter his behaviour.
“We hope also that it sends a message out to any other youths that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated in Wembley Central and the whole area of Brent and should others continue to behave in an anti-social manner, they too will be monitored and evidence gathered in order to submit further Asbo applications on those individuals.”
Safer Neighbourhoods acting Chief Inspector Sean Lynch added: “The Metropolitan Police treats anti-social behaviour very seriously and in conjunction with our statutory and voluntary partners, we will take out appropriate orders, to prevent further offending.”
