Street Aware Lead Officer Adam Stevens, of Solace, said: “Grant’s continued behaviour in the city is totally unacceptable.
“Numerous agencies are involved in supporting Grant, but despite this, his aggressive and violent behaviour continued.
“This order was sought in an effort to curtail the behaviours and to provide some protection and respite to those working, living and visiting our city.”
Sergeant Andrew Doyle, of Gloucester Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Grant has been a cause for concern in the city and, despite efforts to support and prevent repeat behaviour, has continued to cause problems.
“We work closely with our partners in Solace and City Safe to ensure that action is taken to target individuals involved in anti-social behaviour and ensure our community feel safe.”

Anyone witnessing Grant breaching his ASBI is asked to contact Gloucestershire Constabulary on 101 or the Solace team on 01452 396396.
