A violent Brighton man has been banned from all pubs and restaurants in England and Wales after threatening women in a Hanover pub.
Brighton and Hove City Council successfully applied for an antisocial behaviour order against Robert Sansford to be extended for six years and to prohibit Mr Sansford from entering or remaining on any licensed premised in England and Wales.
Mr Sansford is currently in prison awaiting sentence following a violent and unprovoked attack against two women in The Setting Sun pub in Windmill Street, Brighton on 22 February 2010.
This attack, against innocent and vulnerable victims, has left one of the women unable to return to work and lacking all confidence. He has a history of violence towards women, often when drunk and in pubs.
Linda Beanlands, head of community safety for Brighton and Hove City Council said: “We are delighted that the court has agreed with the council and the police in agreeing an extension and variation to the ASBO.
“People who want a quiet drink in their local pub can rest assured that we take their protection seriously, in particular that women can not become a target for violence.”
The ASBO has been extended for six years and will remain in force following once his sentence has been served. It applies to any premises that are licensed to sell alcohol.
