A STOURPORT teen has been handed a criminal behaviour order after anti-social and threatening behaviour. 

Keylan Evans, of Ryvere Close, Stourport, received the order after causing a "significant amount of distress and harassment" to local businesses, members of the public and the wider community.

Numerous reports of anti-social behaviour, threatening behaviour and online abuse were made, according to West Mercia Police. 

The 14-year-old was given the criminal behaviour order at Worcester Magistrates’ Court. It was made on Thursday, May 19 and lasts for three years. 

The order prevents him from entering Kidderminster, except to attend court, a police station or his solicitor, and associate in public with certain people.

He is also banned from being in a group of more than three people in public, outside his immediate family.

Restrictions were also placed on his behaviour and communications.

The teen could face a fine or a prison sentence if he were to breach the order. 

Sergeant Daniel Townsend from the North Worcestershire Problem Solving Hub said: “This order will hopefully prevent him from acting in this manner in the future.

“I hope the CBO provides reassurance to the local community that the police will take positive action in these situations.”
