A Whittlesey boy has been banned from the town centre, ordered to be home every night by 9pm, and not to meet up in groups larger than three.
Huntingdon Youth Court also decided the press could name Albie Burrell when a criminal behaviour order (CBO) was made against him on Wednesday.
Sergeant Richard Lugg said: “Burrell’s behaviour has had a significant impact on the community over a long period of time and hopefully this order will provide respite and reassurance for the local community.
“His actions have included harassment and criminal damage.”
The order prevents Burrell, from Whittlesey, from engaging in any anti-social behaviour until June 25, 2018.
Specifically, Burrell is not to enter an exclusion zone, including Whittlesey town centre and the Avenues, and must adhere to a curfew of being indoors at home between 9pm and 7am, unless certain conditions are met.
The order was applied for by the force’s South Fenland Problem Solving Team in partnership with Fenland District Council Community Safety Team.
Sergeant Lugg, from the team, said: “As part of the order we will be working with Burrell to prevent future offending. “I hope this sends out a strong message that we will not tolerate such behaviour in Fenland and I urge members of the public to report incidents of anti-social behaviour by calling 101.”
Conditions of the criminal behaviour order:
The defendant must not:
Enter and/or remain in the exclusion zone as highlighted on Annexe B (attached) unless travelling by vehicle to a location outside of these boundaries or in the company of a parent, guardian or professional.
Be in a group of 3 or more persons, under the age of 16, which includes himself (you plus two others) in a public place, unless in the company of a parent, guardian or professional.

Throw or otherwise propel any object at any person, vehicle or property.

He must also present himself to a police officer when required during the curfew times.
