A 62-year-old woman has been banned from a number shops in Abingdon town centre after being issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order.

As well as preventing her from entering a total of 12 shops, the order also prevents Janet Millikin, of Fitchett Yard, Abingdon from contacting emergency services unless there is a genuine emergency or need; throwing furniture or other items around in public spaces and obstructing the highway through running, walking or standing on the road in traffic.

In addition, she is prohibited from exposing herself in public or causing any member of the public harassment, alarm or distress.

The CBO was granted as a result of multiple incidents of criminal damage and assault in the Abingdon area.

She appeared at Oxford Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
