Asbo for male 'schoolgirl'

Recommended Posts

AN oddball who dressed as a schoolgirl and loitered near children as they walked home from lessons was given a five-year anti-social behaviour order today, a council said.


Peter Trigger dressed up in a grey skirt and jumper, white shirt, baseball cap and a tie, before waiting near a primary school as children came and went, Northampton Borough Council said.


On several occasions the 59-year-old also wore a knee-length laboratory coat and appeared to be wearing NOTHING UNDERNEATH, the authority added.


Trigger received a five-year Asbo at Northampton Magistrates’ Court – banning him from WEARING A SKIRT or SHOWING BARE LEGS on a school day between 8.30am and 10am, and 2.45pm and 4pm.


The council said parents complained after children were left “scared and confused” by Trigger’s behaviour, between November 2007 and this October.


It added: “All of the parents said that they feared for their children’s safety.


“The matter has got so bad that they have stopped walking their children to school on their own and now walk in groups or take the long way round.”


Trigger, of Thorplands, Northampton, who is a full-time carer for his elderly mother, was also ordered to pay £250 costs.


A spokesman for Northampton Borough Council said: “We appreciate that Mr Trigger has a right to dress how he likes, but not if it is causing distress or alarm to others, particularly young children, which is the case here.”
