A man has been banned from Brighton city centre after being issued with a two-year Criminal Behaviour order.

Brighton Magistrates Court heard on October 21 that Tobias Denyer’s persistent criminal and anti-social behaviour had a ‘detrimental impact on businesses, staff and the community in the city centre’, according to Sussex Police.

They banned Denyer, 37, from the city centre and from Brighton railway station as part of the CBO and he was ordered to engage with St Mungos homeless charity, said police.

CBOs are available for persistent and repeat offenders whose criminal, nuisance and/or anti-social behaviour continually impacts on the community.

PC Rich Hall said: “Denyer has continued to behave anti-socially and be nuisance to the community and he agreed himself when he appeared in court that his behaviour was unacceptable.

“We want to assure the public that we will continue to use anti-social behaviour legislation, as well as criminal powers, to ensure that offenders not only answer for their criminal behaviour, but that they are subject to ongoing restrictions, in order to provide a respite to individuals, businesses or communities.”
