A Syston man has been served with an anti-social behaviour injunction after using intimidating behaviour towards his neighbours.

Charnwood Council applied to Leicester County Court for a without notice injunction against Matthew Perry (52) of Walkers Way.

Council officers served Perry with an interim injunction (an order granted in advance of the full court hearing) and court papers on November 19.

Perry breached the order over the weekend of November 20 and 21 and was arrested.

Perry did not attend the court hearing on November 25 where the judge approved the full injunction order which bars him from contacting specific residents and engaging in threatening or nuisance behaviour in the locality of Walkers Way, Syston.

The order is in place for one year and Perry was also ordered to pay courts costs of £2,331.58.

A council spokeswoman added: “The injunction comes with a power of arrest meaning that if Perry breaches parts of the order, the police can arrest him immediately as the court was satisfied that he poses a significant risk of violence to residents.”
