Second ASBO for Mansfield man

Mansfield District Council has successfully secured an ASBO against a twenty six year old man who has repeatedly been aggressive to council officials, staff in local businesses and other members of the public.

Timothy Tay Milnes, of no fixed abode, was made the subject of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order by Mansfield Magistrates Court on Wednesday 7 November 2012, after a series of incidents involving threats, harassment and foul language.

During a four month period Milnes was verbally abusive to Mansfield District Council officers, Neighbourhood Wardens and PCSOs. He harassed and intimidated staff at a number of shops in Mansfield Town Centre and at Argos and Tesco stores on the Oak Tree Estate, Mansfield, which also caused distress to members of the public.

Under the terms of the order, Milnes is banned from acting in a manner that causes harassment, alarm or distress to anyone in the district of Mansfield.

He is banned from entering, or remaining in Mansfield Town Centre, except for visiting the Post Office on White Heart Street via Albert Street or Churchside, or attending a pre-arranged appointment with his solicitor.

He is also banned from Tesco and Argos and the car park areas off of Jubilee Way South, Mansfield.

The ASBO was granted for a period of two years and will expire on 6 November 2014.

This is the second time Milnes has been subject to an ASBO. On 23 August 2004 Mansfield Magistrates' Court granted an ASBO against Milnes which remained in place until its expiry on 14 July 2007.

Cllr Mick Barton, Portfolio Holder for Public Protection at Mansfield District Council, commented: "I am pleased that this Anti-Social Behaviour Order has been granted. Our Anti-Social Behaviour officers have worked closely with the Police Safer Neighbourhood Teams and local retail security staff to achieve this result. This individual has carried out a series of anti-social, threatening and intimidating acts which could have placed members of the public in real danger. I hope this sends out a clear message that this type of behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated."

Breach of an ASBO is a criminal offence. If you see Timothy Milnes breaking the terms of his ASBO you should contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
