A WILMSLOW teen has been slapped with a criminal behaviour order banning him from entering the town centre after being convicted of assault and harassment.

Jacob Lewis Reid, 18, was given the order at Stockport Magistrates Court on January 8, after being convicted of three charges against two women in November.

The order will run for a period of two years, meaning Reid, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, cannot enter the town centre or any areas of Wilmslow west of the A34 and south of The Carrs.

If he breaches the terms of the order, Reid faces the prospect of being locked up.

Reid was convicted of assaulting and harassing a woman in Wilmslow on October 20 2019 as well as for another charge of harassment that took place on January 17 last year.

PC Chris Mullin said: "Reid has been harassing women in the street and has been causing an unwarranted amount of anti-social behaviour in the town centre - causing misery to those who live and work there.

"We hope that Criminal Behaviour Order will curb his behaviour and reassure residents that we do take action.

"If you see Reid in the town centre or in the streets he is prohibited from entering, as shown on the map, contact police on 101.

"Together we can tackle antis-social behaviour and make our communities a safer place to live and work."
