A MAN who had been making the lives of Huthwaite residents a misery has been slapped with an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI).

Scott Wilcox (22) had been terrorising the community around High Hazles Drive.

Places for People, a housing and regeneration group, worked with the police to obtain the injunction which prohibits him from going to the street until 6th September next year except to visit his mother on a Saturday or Sunday and then only by a designated route.

He is also prohibited from causing a nuisance or threatening violence on the street - and if he breaks the injunction he will be arrested.

Steve Adams, who is community safety manager at Places for People, said: “Obtaining the Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction against Wilcox is a real achievement.

“His behaviour has caused significant nuisance and annoyance to residents on the estate.

“Wilcox’s appalling behaviour has included dealing and using drugs, handling stolen goods, assaulting police officers, threatening and intimidating other residents by using offensive weapons, which on one occasion included Wilcox waving two machetes in the air at a resident.”

Wilcox is currently in prison for burglary and is due for release in September.
