If you see this man in Hull Paragon Interchange, then please let us know.
He is Ashley David Smith and he shouldn’t be there as he has been handed an order that prevents him from entering the station area and a number of other premises in the city for two years.
If he breaks the order he could face being sent to prison.
Since October 2015, Smith has been involved in 10 incidents, the majority of which have been within the station vicinity, and include anti-social behaviour, assault, theft of motor vehicle, robbery and public order offences.
Smith’s CBO will last for 2 two years and bans him from coming within 50 yards of the station and two hostels within the city. The order also prevents, Smith, 29 of Walliker Street, from acting in an anti-social manner and abusing emergency services staff or face jail.  
15-year-old Jade Stacey. Stacey, of Hampshire Street has also been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) also for two years after she was involved in 59 incidents of anti-social and criminal behaviour in and around the station area since February 2015. Her order bans her from the station, St Stephens Centre and a number of other areas in the city.
BTP, supported by Humberside Police, Hull City Council, Carlisle Support Services the rail industry and local businesses made an application at Hull Magistrates’ Court for two separate CBOs in a bid to curb Smith and Stacey’s behaviour and protect passengers. Both were granted. 

PC Cheryl Scrase from BTP said: “Our job is to make sure passengers and rail staff using the station and interchange feels safe and secure and ensure the station remains a safe and pleasant environment to travel through and work in.
“Smith and Stacey’s anti-social behaviour was affecting this and causing distress to members of the public, which we will not tolerate.

“The order in place prevents them both from intimidating people at the station and allows the courts to take swift action if their anti-social and unacceptable behaviour continues.”
“The orders are as a result of some excellent partnership work we have carried out with other agencies. I hope that this will send a clear message to those people who engage in criminal and anti-social behaviour in Hull that we will do everything in our power to stop them and to protect the public.’
