Teenager Banned From Mansfield Town Centre

7th December 2017
News, Mansfield

The ringleader of a group of teenagers who have plagued people with anti-social behaviour in Mansfield has been banned from the town centre for two years.

Fourteen-year-old Neo Gamlin must also stay away from Titchfield Park and Ladybrook Park in Mansfield, unless accompanied by his parents, under the terms of a Criminal Behaviour Order.

The order also prohibits him from causing nuisance, alarm, distress or harassment to people in Mansfield, or abusing police officers, police community support officers, or Mansfield District Council wardens.

If he ignores the order, it is a criminal offence and he could be locked up.

Gamlin, of Pembleton Drive, Mansfield, was given the order after admitting two offences of criminal damage and one theft. The court heard he kicked random cars in an unprovoked attack on 22 August and also ripped a toilet roll holder off a wall in a McDonald's restaurant before stealing it on 24 August.

He was also the leader of a group who have been behaving in a threatening and intimidating manner towards business owners, market traders and shoppers, leading to numerous complaints.

The Mansfield Town Centre beat team worked alongside its partners at Mansfield District Council to collate the evidence against Gamlin and apply for the order.

Sergeant Dave Booler, of Nottinghamshire Police, said he was pleased with the outcome of the case at Mansfield Magistrates' Court on 21 November.

"Gamlin has been identified as a ring leader in the issues we have been experiencing. Our aim is to ensure that people feel safe while visiting and working in Mansfield Town Centre and by successfully obtaining the CBO and robustly policing it we feel sure that this will have a positive impact," he said.
