Police have released a picture of a man wanted for breaching the terms of an injunction preventing him from entering the Druids Heath estate.

Birmingham Magistrates issued the order to Reuben Hylton, currently of no fixed address, in October 2012 after he terrorised locals with a series of alleged offences including false imprisonment, witness intimidation and assault. 53201417-1515

The order prevented him from entering Druids Heath and was extended in March 2013 to also include Billesley.

The court ordered that Hylton, whether by himself or by instructing, encouraging or allowing any other person shall not: use or threaten violence against any resident of Druids Heath, use or threaten violence against any employee or contractor of Birmingham City Council and enter the Druids Heath estate itself.

The injunction which lasts till 23 October 2015 means if Hylton is convicted he could face time behind bars, a fine or both.

Sergeant Karen Hunn, from the Brandwood neighbourhood policing team, said: “Hylton is a persistent offender who is a nuisance to the residents of Druids Heath and Billesley.

“Anti-social behaviour injunctions are used to protect the community, so Hylton must be brought to justice for breaching the terms of his injunction and made to realise that disregard of these terms will mean punishment.”

Anyone who has information on the whereabouts of Hylton is urged to call the police on 101 or alternatively information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
