A Brent man has been banned from Harlesden after local cops obtained an order in hope of curbing his anti-social behaviour.
On pain of a criminal charge, Jordan Malcolm, 33, of no fixed abode, is also prohibited from asking strangers for money, possessing drugs or drugs paraphernalia - and even from using a hire bike without paying for one.
The Met's Harlesden Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) successfully applied for a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) which means that if Malcolm breaches any of the conditions, it would be a criminal offence that could lead to imprisonment.
CBOs are imposed after an individual is convicted of a crime.
Harlesden SNT's Sgt Stuart Colman told this newspaper: "My team have worked tirelessly over a long period of time, gathering evidence to support the application and speaking to residents affected by Mr Malcolm's behaviour and use of drugs.
