A man has been issued a five-year Criminal Behaviour Order by the Chester Magistrates Court to stop his harassment of women in Chester city centre.

The Order, effective from May 11, aims to prevent 34-year-old Chester man, Jacob Allerson from his continued anti-social behaviour, following numerous complaints from the public and local businesses.

Criminal Behaviour Orders are preventive measures issued when all other actions to curb an individual’s anti-social behaviour have proved ineffective.

Violation of these orders could result in the offender facing significant penalties, including possible imprisonment.

Under the terms of the order, Allerson is explicitly prohibited from acting in any manner that would cause alarm, distress, or harassment to women.

This includes making unsolicited explicit sexual comments, suggestions, or requests to any female in a public place within England or Wales.

The Order further outlines specific conditions Allerson must adhere to, including a ban from entering several locations within the Cheshire West and Chester Borough, such as Brio Leisure sites, Storyhouse Chester, Fatface Chester, and Caffe Nero outlets on Eastgate Street, Bridge Street, and Foregate Street.

Allerson is also barred from entering any premises in England and Wales where he has been verbally or in writing informed that he has been excluded.

Furthermore, Allerson is required to leave any premises in England and Wales immediately when asked to do so by staff or security.

He must also terminate all contact and/or communication with any female who has declined his offer to go out or meet with him.

Inspector James Wilson explained that Allerson had been a persistent nuisance, refusing to accept ‘No’ for an answer and making inappropriate sexual comments towards young women in Chester.

“Our priority is to protect women and make Chester a safe and enjoyable place for everyone to live, work and visit, which is why we have had to apply for this Order,” said Wilson.

He concluded by stating his hope that this order would help women feel safer, and urged anyone who witnessed Allerson breaching the Order to contact the police.
