A man has been banned from Worksop town centre for four years after a series of antisocial behaviour incidents.

Richard Frost, 43, of no fixed address, was sentenced to 26 weeks on 12 April at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.

He was arrested on 4 April and remanded to court at which time he was given a criminal behaviour order (CBO). Frost had a previous CBO which expired in February 2018 and since then he has committed multiple shop thefts, assault on store security, police assault and racially aggravated offences. The new CBO application detailed his continued antisocial behaviour in Worksop town centre which caused problems for businesses and shoppers in the town.

He is now banned from entering any retail premises in Worksop town centre, Priory Centre shopping centre and car park and Morrisons on Kilton Road, including the car park and petrol station.

Worksop beat manager PC Julie Armstrong said: “This is a great result of multi-agency work and a good result for the people of Worksop. Frost will be arrested if he steps foot in Worksop town centre shops at any point over the next four years and we hope that serves as a lesson to him”.
