A 20-year-old man was last week handed a 10 week prison sentence and a two year Criminal Behaviour Order following a spate of incidents in the Euston and King’s Cross area. 

Brandon Crozier of Quex Road, Camden appeared before Highbury Corner Magistrates’ court on Thursday 4 May.

On Monday 1 May, officers patrolling Euston station identified Crozier who was wanted for failing to appear at court in relation to multiple offences. When officers approached him, he ran off and officers gave chase. 

He was caught by officers and immediately became aggressive, violently kicking and resisting arrest. Using his fingers, he attempted to gouge at the officer’s eyes who was trying to restrain him. As more officers arrived to assist, one was bitten by Crozier. 

Crozier was taken to police custody and later charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer.  

As part of his sentencing, Crozier was also handed a two year Criminal Behaviour Order, where he is prohibited from:

1. Entering or alighting at Kings Cross, St Pancras or Euston stations. 
2. Entering or loitering outside any mainline or London Underground station unless intending to travel with a valid ticket. 
3. Entering or alighting any mainline or London Underground station whilst under the influence of intoxicating liquor or substances. 
4. Approaching people and acting in a manner which is threatening or intimidating towards them whilst in public. 

Commander for Euston station, Inspector Tim Tubbs, said: “Crozier was a pest around the Euston and King’s Cross area and we are pleased with the sentence. The violence he demonstrated in trying to evade police custody was simply disgusting, resulting in two of my officers being assaulted. We do not tolerate this type of violent and anti-social behaviour and will always seek the toughest possible sentences. 

“Last week’s sentence proves this and Crozier now has a court order prohibiting him from causing further distress of concern amongst the travelling public. This order should also be welcomed by members of the public, who will thankfully not have to experience his anti-social and at times, threatening behaviour. 

“If anyone spots Crozier in breach of his order they should report it to us immediately by sending us a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40.”
