A man who attacked a pregnant woman was today handed an order banning him from a town centre amid fears his crime will escalate.
Tyler Greenway has been responsible for a catalogue of offences since he moved to Warrington two years ago.
Most recently, he was sent to jail in April for assaulting a pregnant woman and for a racially aggravated public order offence.
Now he is a free man, police have released a mugshot of Greenway and issued him with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).
It prevents him from going anywhere in Warrington town centre, unless he is attending court, a drug or probation meeting, or meeting Jobcentre staff.
He is also not allowed to act in a manner which causes harassment, alarm or distress to others.
The final restriction is that he cannot "act in a manner which is anti-social, or inciting or encouraging anyone else to do so".
If he breaches any of these conditions, he could be returned to jail for up to five years.
The order will last for two years.
Sergeant Alex Reeves, of Warrington Police, said: “CBOs are preventative orders with strict restrictions that are imposed in a bid to stop persistent offenders committing further offences.
“They are applied for separately to prosecutions for criminal offences as a last resort.
“In the case of Tyler Greenway, he has committed a series of offences in Warrington town centre over the past two years and there has been an escalation of his violent, abusive and anti-social behaviour in recent times.
“His offending has had a significant impact on members of the Warrington community and he has persistently shown no consideration at all for the effects his unacceptable behaviour has had on others.
“No-one should be subjected to such behaviour, or feel threatened or intimidated by the actions of other people, and we will use whatever powers we have at our disposal to ensure that Warrington is a pleasant place to live, work and visit.
“I hope that the CBO imposed on Greenway has the desired effect and deters him from committing further offences.
