Graig-Y-Rhacca boy, 15, given ASBO
A 15-year-old boy has been given an Antisocial Behaviour Order.
Kane Austin, of Grays Gardens, Graig-Y-Rhacca was given a two-year ASBO at Cwmbran Youth Court on April 3 after a series of abusive, antisocial and aggressive incidents in his local area.
The ASBO prevents Kane, anywhere within Caerphilly County Borough, from:
Acting or inciting others to act in an antisocial manner likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household
Throwing items at any person
Throwing any items at any property not belonging to him or without the owners consent
Urinating in a public place other than a public lavatory
Being together in a public place in a group of two or more persons behaving in a manner likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress, or in a manner likely to cause a person to fear for their safety or the safety of their property or vehicles
Being drunk or consuming alcohol in any public place other than licensed premises
Being under the influence of any illegal substance in a public place
In addition to the ASBO, Kane is also subject to an Individual Support Order, which means he must work with the local Youth Offending Service in order to help prevent a repetition of the behaviour which led to the making of the AntiSocial Behaviour Order.
PC Stuart Lewis, Crime and Disorder Reduction Officer for Bedwas, said: “The Antisocial Behaviour Order placed upon this young person sends out a clear message that behaving in this way will not be tolerated in the local community.
“Our aim is to protect the community and I am sure that the quality of life for these residents who have been previously subjected to anti-social behaviour will now improve.”
Breaching an ASBO is a criminal offence.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
