SEATON: Former Seaton man given ASBO

Thursday, 05 December 2013

A former Seaton man has been given a two year Anti Social Behaviour Order after carrying out numerous acts of threatening and abusive behaviour in the Seaton area.
Robert Male, of no fixed abode, was handed the ASBO at Exeter Magistrates Court on November 18th after the court heard evidence of threats of violence, verbal abuse, urinating in a public place and intimidating and drunken behaviour on NHS premises.
The 30-year-old man received the following prohibitions as a result of the ASBO:
i) He must not enter Powell Close, Seaton or Harepath Road, Seaton except when on public transport;
ii) He must not remain on any NHS premises or GP surgery in the Devon having been asked to leave either by NHS staff or security staff;
iii) He must not use abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in any public place.
 This order will last for two years. If Mr Male breaches the order then he could be fined or sent to prison for up to five years.
Should anyone witness a breach of the above ASBO prohibitions by Mr Male, it is requested that they call the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency to report it.
PC Daz Norton, who is the local officer for Seaton, is extremely happy with the decision of the court.
Whilst gathering evidence against Male he heard many accounts from the public and local businesses about his behaviour. Working jointly with East Devon District Council and the NHS, Devon and Cornwall Police were able to present a case for the court to hear.
The Seaton and Axminster Local Policing Team and East Devon District Council work tirelessly to ensure members of the community are able to go about their lives free from this sort of behaviour.
It is hoped that this action is seen as a reminder to anyone who wishes to indulge in this type of behaviour that it will not be tolerated and action will be taken in order to ensure a safe and happy community.
