A SERIAL troublemaker who aimed a fake gun at a fellow bus passenger has been banned from the town centre he terrorised.
Kristian Palnoni, of Twyford Road, South Harrow, used to hang around the Wealdstone's shopping parade intimidating passers-by and shopkeepers.
Magistrates at Harrow Magistrates' Court granted a two-year ASBO to the Metropolitan Police on December 9 after hearing about a string of anti-social behaviour, including three serious offences, caused by the nuisance teen.
Prosecutors began by explaining how in December 2007, Palnoni was sitting at the rear of a bus travelling along High Street, Wealdstone, when he pointed an imitation pistol at the face of a young man sitting opposite him.
Two days later, Palnoni was involved in a fight in George Gange Way, Wealdstone, in which he threatened various people by showing another counterfeit firearm tucked into his wasteband.
He was later convicted and sentenced to referral orders of four months and eight months respectivelty for the two crimes.
In 2008, again in High Street, he approached a 15-year-old schoolboy and held a sharp implement to his neck and demanded the victim hand over cash, a robbery for which Palnoni received a 12-month supervision order. And twice in the last two years, he has been caught in possession of cannabis.
Wealdstone is covered by a dispersal order which means police can order loiterers to move on and not return to the designated zone within 24 hours, and Paloni has been told five times to leave the area, usually while outside Ladbrokes bookmakers or McDonalds restaurant.
Breaching the officer's instruction, as the 19-year-old has done twice, is a criminal offence.
The court further heard that in May, Palnoni stole a police community support officer's bike while the officer was helping a colleague arrest a suspect.
The terms of Palnoni's ASBO mean he cannot enter the Wealdstone dispersal zone except as a passenger on a bus or train passing through although he cannot alight at Harrow and Wealdstone station.
He is not allowed to be in any public place in the borough with any of eight named associates.
Palnoni is forbidden to cover his face in public or part in a group of three or more people in Harrow "where any member of that group is acting in a way to make any other person fear for their safety".
Breaching an ASBO is a criminal offence and Palnoni can be arrested and brought before the court again.
