A prolific beggar who intimidated Lambeth drivers has been issued with a two year Anti Social Behaviour Order.

Charles Alfred Waller, 51, was issued the ASBO at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court after Lambeth Police worked alongside the council following complaints about his behaviour.

PC Julie-Anne Cockburn, of Brixton Hill SNT, said that Waller would approach cars waiting at traffic lights at the junction of Brixton Hill with Christchurch Road, begging.

“Waller would bang on car windows and some felt intimidated by him. As well as being a nusiance, it was also a safety hazard as he dodged in and out of traffic,” she said.

“Hopefully this order will stop any further problems. I urge the public to contact us should they see Waller in breach of his asbo.”

The ASBO means that he must not approach people in the street or those queuing in traffic and ask for money, not to be drunk and disorderly in a public place, not to knock on residential properties asking for money, and not to urinate in a public place.

Members of the public should call 101 if they see Waller in breach of his ASBO.
