Boy, 16, gets Asbo hooded top ban

Dale Carroll
A 16-year-old boy from Manchester has been given an Asbo that bans him from wearing a hooded top for five years.

Dale Carroll from Cheetham was part of a gang that caused lots of problems for people living in Collyhurst Village, a court heard.

In one incident Carroll, also known as Elms, tried to cut down a CCTV camera with a chainsaw.

The Asbo also bans him from wearing a cap and from meeting more than two people at once, apart from his family.

If Carroll does any of the things the Asbo says he is not allowed to he could be sent to prison for up to five years.

"This young man has caused absolute misery for the people he has terrorised in this neighbourhood and is out of control," Eddy Newman, a Manchester city councillor, said in a statement.

"He should be absolutely clear we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour and unless he radically changes that behaviour, he faces a long period in custody."
