Interim ASBO imposed after application made by Devon and Cornwall Police.

A man has been banned from entering areas of Seaton after being given an interim antisocial behaviour order.

Robert Male, 29, of no fixed abode, was given the ASBO by North and East Devon Magistrates’ Court, Exeter, after an application was made by Devon and Cornwall Police.

The order will last until noon on September 19, 2013.

Male is prohibited from entering Powell Close and Harepath Road, except when on public transport.

He is also banned from entering or remaining on any National Health Service premises or GP surgery in the county of Devon having been asked to leave either by staff or security.

Male must not use abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in any public place or consume alcohol in a public place other than in licensed premises.

Gerry Moore, the community safety and anti social behaviour officer for East Devon District Council said: “I am aware from my dealings with local police officers that Mr Male’s behaviour in the Seaton area was causing a lot of people a great deal of concern.

“Applications such as this are only made as a last resort.”

The case for a full ASBO has been adjourned by magistrates until September 18.
