A 16-year-old boy from Caerphilly county borough is the latest person to receive an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO), after a catalogue of anti-social behaviour in and around his community.
Daniel Maslen, of Station Road, Ystrad Mynach was given a two year ASBO by Caerphilly Magistrates recently (23rd December 2010) after a series of anti-social incidents in the Ystrad Mynach and Gelligaer areas of Caerphilly county borough.
Daniel displayed frequent abusive, intimidating and anti-social behaviour, and despite numerous interventions as part of the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership's well-established 'four strikes' process for tackling anti-social behaviour, his behaviour continued.
The Anti-Social Behaviour Order prevents Daniel Maslen, anywhere within the Caerphilly county borough area from:-
Cabinet Member for Public Protection, Engineering and Transport, Cllr Rob Gough said, "I hope the gaining of this Anti-Social Behaviour Order will send out a strong message to the small minority who feel it is acceptable to behave in an anti-social manner that their behaviour will not be tolerated".
Neighbourhood Inspector for the Ystrad Mynach area, Kevin Childs said: 'Breaches of Anti Social Behaviour Orders are taken very seriously by the Courts. I am certain that this Order will bring some much-deserved peace and quiet to the neighbours and residents who have previously been affected by the behaviour of this 16-year-old boy.
'The successful application for this Order is an example of how seriously we take reports of Anti-Social Behaviour, and how committed the Partnership is in continuing to reduce ASB across the Caerphilly county borough area.'
The Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership is a multi-agency organisation, whose statutory bodies are Caerphilly County Borough Council, Gwent Police, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Aneurin Bevan Health Board, Gwent Police Authority and Wales Probation Trust.
