A Blaenau Gwent man has been banned from Abergavenny for three years after being given a Criminal Behaviour Order.

Guy Seabourne, 35, was given the CBO order at Newport Magistrates’ Court on Friday February 25, following persistent anti-social behaviour in the town.

The CBO order states that Seabourne is banned from the following areas:

·        Tudor St

·        Frogmore St

·        High St

·        Neville St

·        Cross St

·        Baker St

·        Lion St

·        Queen St

·        Castle St

·        Lower Castle St

·        Market St

·        King St

·        Regent St

·        Princess St

·        Park Rd

·        Monmouth Rd

Seabourne is banned from entering these areas unless attending a pre-arranged appointment.

He is also banned from Hereford Road, Merthyr Road and the petrol station in Llanfoist as well as other retail premises in the area, specifically the Esso Garage and Waitrose, and is not to enter any retail premises unless intending to legitimately buy an item, with the means to do so.

Gwent Police’s PC Joanne Torjesen, of the Monmouthshire neighbourhood policing team, said: “We know this order will be welcomed by those working and living in Abergavenny.

Seabourne’s persistent anti-social behaviour has had a detrimental effect on the local community. We are committed to making Abergavenny a safe and pleasant place for all and enforcing this order is a part of that.

Gwent Police PC, Joanne Torjesen

PC Torjesen added: “Applying for a CBO is always a last resort. Before then, we work with our partners to try and engage and support individuals such as Seabourne.

“We hope the CBO will now act as a deterrent and encourage Seabourne to accept the support available.”

Anyone who sees Seabourne breaching this order should call 101 or contact Gwent Police through their social media pages, quoting reference 2200056466.
