A “trouble-maker” has been banned from Mansfield for three years after assaulting a police officer.

Kylelon Francis, aged 20, was handed a three-year Community Behaviour Order after admitting a string of offences at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.

The order prevents him from entering the town, as well as acting or inciting others to act in an anti-social manner in the area of Mansfield.

The court heard Francis, of Carlton Road, Nottingham, was arrested and charged for committing a public disorder offence and assaulting an officer in the early hours of Easter Saturday, April 15.

He returned the following weekend and was arrested and charged with being drunk and disorderly and possessing cannabis. Officers had been called to Clumber Street on the evening of Saturday, April 22, to reports a man had been causing issues with local homeless people.

PC Ian Dickson, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Kylelon was intent on causing trouble in the Mansfield area and so we are pleased that he has received this banning order. We hope that it sends the message out that troublemakers who come in from out of town will not be tolerated.”
