A Doncaster man is set to be sentenced, for breaching the conditions of his Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI) by preying on elderly victims.

Jamie Morris, of Herriott Grove, Bircotes, was found to have breached the conditions of his ASBI at a hearing at Nottingham County Court last month.

The 28-year-old was served with the order in December last year for preying on two elderly victims over a prolonged period.

His offences included subjecting his victims to continuous harassment, demands for money, threats of physical harm and repeated threats to turn off the gas supply to one of the properties.

Morris was found to have breached the terms of his ASBI on January 1, 2016 after he had entered an exclusion zone that was in place to prevent Mr Morris returning to his victim’s homes.

This area includes the estate between Bawtry Road and Baulk Lane including Sandrock Road, Lindsey Road, Beech Road and surrounding streets.

Don Spittlehouse, Managing Director of A1 Housing, said: “Mr Morris is a callous and dangerous individual who has preyed on elderly and vulnerable individuals simply for his

own selfish gain.

“These cowardly and savage actions have now been recognised by the courts and thanks to the co-operation and close partnership working with Nottinghamshire Police, Mr Morris will

be sentenced appropriately.

“Should you see Mr Morris in the exclusion zone, I would urge all Harworth residents to contact the Police so he may be arrested again and be put before the courts.”

“If you believe that an elderly neighbour or relative is being targeted by Mr Morris or any other unscrupulous individual please report your concerns to police on 101.”

A hearing to determine sentencing is scheduled for April 22.

His ASBI order is due to remain in place until November 18.
