Homeless man jailed after breaching CRASBO

Worcester Editorial 2nd Sep, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

A HOMELESS man who breached a Criminal Anti Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) by entering parts of Worcester three times in four days has been jailed.

Peter Swinbourne was handed a five year order in April 2010 not to enter Pershore town centre, but magistrates extended the ban to parts of Worcester city centre in January.

The 42-year-old was sentenced to 16-weeks in prison after he acted in a threatening and abusive manner in the Deansway area on August 23.

Prior to sentencing, he had also breached his order on August 20 and 22 for being within an area the CRASBO had banned him from and for making threats, acting aggressively and swearing.

Jenny Willems, community harm co-ordinator at West Mercia Police, said: “By proactively enforcing the CRASBO’s against Swinbourne, we have shown that his actions are not acceptable and have a negative impact on society.

“It is hoped that the time away will help him to reflect and look to turn his life around.”
