A man has been banned from entering the centre of Newport for three years as part of a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) imposed by the courts.
Luke Fauvel, aged 38 and from Station Avenue in Sandown, was handed the CBO by Magistrates on the Isle of Wight on 8 November this year.
This follows a prolonged period of abusive and threatening behaviour perpetrated by Fauvel.
Police have worked with local businesses, shop owners and pubs to understand the extent of the issues, which included reports of criminal damage, theft, public order offences, and drunken anti-social and nuisance behaviour.
Magistrates were subsequently provided with witness statements outlining this behaviour, and considered Fauvel’s previous convictions which date back to 2006. His most recent conviction was on 2 September this year after he pleaded guilty to shoplifting - relating to the theft of a vacuum cleaner from Sainsbury’s in Newport on 16 July.
Fauvel is now prohibited from doing the following under the conditions of the CBO:
The map provided shows the prohibition area, and there are points marked on the map which indicate certain locations where incidents have been reported relating to Fauvel’s behaviour.
Inspector Matt Gooding said: “Luke Fauvel’s extensive history of poor behaviour has now caught up with him, and he has been served with a lengthy order that will limit his ability to continue behaving in this manner.
“These incidents have caused misery to the local community for far too long, and I hope this provides some reassurance that action is being taken to prevent any further longer term impact.
“If any conditions of the CBO are breached, then Fauvel risks facing time in prison.
“We are grateful to the local community and our partners who have supported the work that has gone into securing this outcome.
“We continue to encourage anyone who is affected by anti-social behaviour to contact police by calling 101, or using the report tool on the Hampshire Constabulary website.”
