Man banned from talking about sex to women everywhere

A man has been banned from talking to women and entering various locations including gyms and shops.

Jacob Allerson, 34, appeared before Chester Magistrates Court on Thursday, May 11, after he harassed young women across the city and "would not take no for an answer". Cheshire Police Police said he continued to "be a nuisance" and was intimidating towards the women.

Appearing before the court, he was handed a five-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) whereby if breached, he will find himself back before the court. The Criminal Behaviour Order is a preventive order to address an individual’s anti-social behaviour when all other measures have been exhausted, police confirmed.

Under the order, Allerson is prevented from following or acting or any in a way that would cause a female harassment, alarm or distress including making any unsolicited explicit sexual comment, suggestions or requests to any female in a public place in England or Wales.

Inspector James Wilson said: "Police received complaints from members of the public and businesses that their young female staff were being followed. Allerson would not take ‘No’ for an answer when he asked them out and made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature towards young women in Chester.

"Allerson continued to be a nuisance and was intimidating women who should have been able to go about their business without fear of harassment. Our priority is to protect women and make Chester a safe and enjoyable place for everyone to live, work and visit, which is why we have had to apply for this Order.

"I hope this Order will help to make women feel much safer and if anyone see Allerson breaching this Order, please contact police on 101 or via the website."

Cheshire Police confirmed he must comply to the following conditions:

  • Must not enter any Brio Leisure sites within Cheshire West and Chester Borough, Storyhouse Chester, Fatface Chester, Caffe Nero Eastgate Street, Bridge Street and Foregate Street, Chester.
  • Must not enter any premises in England and Wales where he has been verbally or in writing informed that has been barred or excluded.
  • Must not remain in or on any premises in England and Wales when asked to leave by any member of staff or security.
  • He must also immediately cease all contact and/or communication with any female in England and Wales who has declined his offer to go out or meet up with him.
