So called Pied Piper banned

An 18-year-old man has received a two-year Anti-Social Behaviour Order after being described by residents as ‘Pied Piper’ to a group of youths who have been causing distress to residents on the Collingwood Estate in Sutton.

Lucas O’Neil, of no fixed abode, was given his ASBO when he appeared at Croydon Magistrates Court on the 4th of October having pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis.

O’Neil was arrested after police officers spotted him discarding a small amount of cannabis whilst walking on the estate on the 24th July. He was given a condition discharge for 12 months for this offence.

The ASBO runs for two years until the 3rd of October 2014.

The police and Sutton Housing Partnership - the estate landlords - had received a number of complaints from residents. Three of them have dubbed O’Neil a ‘Pied Piper’ character for taking a leading role in noisy and troublesome behaviour on the estate recently.

O’Neil is not allowed to:

Be in a group of three or more people including himself in a public place or communal area on the Collingwood Estate apart from entry to one specific address in Dennis House

Use verbally abusive language or behaviour towards any person including police officers and PCSOs on the Collingwood Estate.

PC Jo Tugwell, of Sutton Council’s funded ASB Unit, which is based at the police station, asked residents to call police immediately on 999 if they see O’Neil breaching his ASBO.

“We are taking a zero tolerance approach to bad behaviour for anyone causing problems on the estate, said PC Tugwell. “We want residents to come forward if they are suffering from bad behaviour so we can help make it stop. We will be robust and relentless in our pursuit of troublemakers,” she added.

This is the 2nd ASBO granted to police to make the Collingwood Estate a safer place to live.
