ASBO handed to Lucas O'Neil the 'pied piper' of Collingwood Estate, Sutton
An 18-year-old has been given a two year Asbo after leading a gang of youth who terrorised a housing estate.
Lucas O'Neil was described by residents of the Collingwood Estate as the 'pied piper' of the gang.
At Croydon Magistrates Court on October 4, O'Neil pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and was handed the order.
O'Neil has been banned from being in a group of three or more people and using a verbally abusive language towards any person for two years.
The police and Sutton Housing Partnership - the estate landlords - had received a number of complaints from residents about the homeless youth who had taken a leading role in noisy and troublesome behaviour on the estate recently.
Police constable Jo Tugwell, asked residents to call police immediately on 999 if they see O’Neil breaching his ASBO.
She said: "We are taking a zero tolerance approach to bad behaviour for anyone causing problems on the estate. We want residents to come forward if they are suffering from bad behaviour so we can help make it stop."
It is the 2nd Asbo granted to police on the Collingwood Estate.
