A Crewe man who has been convicted of a string of offences has been handed a criminal behaviour order.
Paul Whyte, of no fixed abode, was handed the three-year banning order at South Cheshire Magistrates Court on Wednesday 27 February. His offences include assault and public order offences.
The 48-year-old, known locally as ‘Spider’, is now forbidden from entering an exclusion zone bounded by Nantwich Road, Mill Street, Oak Street, Wistaston Road, and Stewart Street, into Valley Road, onto Broughton Lane, and into Crewe Road back to Nantwich Road.
He must not use abusive, threatening or intimidating language, or abusive, threatening or intimidating behaviour, in front of any person in public or private; have an open drinking vessel in any public place; or enter Crewe railway station unless he is travelling.
The order also stipulates that whilst walking his dog, Whyte must always keep it on a lead and under his control.
Crewe South local beat manager PC Tom Towe said: “Paul’s actions have caused significant alarm amongst members of the public, who called us for assistance.
“This CBO means that, amongst other conditions, Paul Whyte will now be unable to enter certain parts of the Crewe area.
“No-one should feel intimidated by the actions of other people and we will use whatever powers we have at our disposal to ensure that public areas such as Nantwich Road remain a pleasant place to live, visit or run a business.
“If you see him breaching these conditions, we encourage you to report it.”
Anyone who encounters Whyte breaching any of the above restrictions is asked to contact Cheshire Constabulary on 101 to report it.
