A BABY-FACED 14-year-old has been banned from part of Burnley following a two-year reign of terror.
Charley Green, of Liverpool Road, has been arrested in recent months for robbery, common assault, burglary, possession of cannabis, verbal abuse, criminal damage, obstructing police, harassment and intimidating a witness.
Officers told Reedley magistrates that previous interven-tions had not worked and an Anti-Social Behaviour Order was the final option.
Green, known as “Charley Chips”, was given an interim ASBO after Burnley Council took civil proceedings.
Jonathan Jackson, prosecuting for the council, said: “There is a regularity and seriousness about Charley Green’s offences and the people of Rosegrove need some respite from him.”
PC Lee Richards said he had spoken at length with Green and his mother about the behaviour.
He said: “Charley has been in the cells five times since Christmas.
"People tell me Charley has been saying he will stab me when I’m on my own.”
The interim ASBO means Green cannot associate with more than three people in public at any time, walk through parts of Rosegrove unaccompanied by an adult or throw any objects with the intent to harm.
Coun Charlie Briggs, executive member for community safety, said: “I know Charley.
"His mum works really hard to keep him on the right path and I hope he turns out to be a gentleman.”
