Criminal Behaviour Order prevents street drinker from entering Retail Park

Worcester Editorial 11th Jan, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

A MAN has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) which will prevent him from entering parts of Worcester city centre and behaving in a threatening or abusive manner for two years.

John McPhee, 66, of no fixed abode, was issued with the order at Worcester Magistrates Court on Tuesday, December 29.

It was applied following a conviction for an offence of being drunk and disorderly that occurred on the November 26, 2015 in Tallow Hill, Worcester where he was shouting and swearing in the street whilst drunk in full view of members of the public.

The order bans him from entering any part of the Lowesmoor Wharf area of Worcester (defined by Map A) and Shrub Hill retail park off Tallow Hill, Shrub Hill Road and Cromwell Street (defined in Map B).

The order also prevents Mr McPhee from behaving in a threatening or abusive way that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person.

He is also prevented from consuming alcohol or to be in possession of an open vessel of alcohol in any designated place, where the consumption of alcohol is prohibited anywhere within in England and Wales.

Jenny Willems, Community Harm (ASB) Coordinator for West Mercia Police said: “Mr McPhee was made subject of an anti-social behaviour order in Hereford in November 2014 following a series of similar offences he committed whilst living there.

“He continued with his drunken anti-social behaviour when he moved to Worcester early last year, with over 20 incidents of anti social behaviour committed by him being recorded. He has become well known to Worcester Police, regularly being found drunk on the street and drinking in areas that are designated no alcohol areas. His behaviour when he is drunk is unacceptable and causes alarm and distress to people who witness it.

If you do see Mr McPhee entering the prohibited areas and in breach of his order, then please contact West Mercia Police on 101.”
