A man has been banned from Brighton city centre for five years after his ‘significant anti-social behaviour and criminality in the area’, say police.
Sussex Police say that Ryan Tyles Breach, 30, a builder, of no fixed address, is a ‘persistent and repeat offender’ whose criminal, nuisance and anti-social behaviour has been ‘having a detrimental impact on local businesses and the community in general’.
On Thursday September 19 he was issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) by Brighton magistrates which excludes him from the city centre, including St James Street, Queens Road and London Road.
In addition, he is forbidden to associate with Toby Denyer, 37, within the same area.
Breach did not contest the order and accepted its conditions, agreeing that his behaviour has been unacceptable, said police.
Failure to comply with the order means Breach commits a criminal offence for which he may be sent to prison.
PC Rich Hall, of Brighton Police, welcomed the ban and said: “The public can be assured 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 actions but are subject to ongoing restrictions such as those now imposed on Breach.
“People can help us to ensure that Breach keeps to the court’s conditions by reporting any sightings of him in the city centre without delay.”
