A KNIFE-wielding teenager has been excluded from Huntingdon for three years, after he carried out a series of attacks.
An anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) has been put on 16-year-old John Kennett, formerly of Garner Court in Huntingdon, after evidence that he was responsible for several violent assaults and knife attacks in Oxmoor and other areas of the town.
Some of the attacks involved other weapons, and other incidents were reported of harassment and intimidation against fellow residents.
Kennett has now been moved to a young offenders' institution.

Huntingdon Magistrates' Court decided that he should be excluded from Huntingdon for a period of three years, after evidence that he had made tenants' lives a misery.
In addition to the three-year exclusion, the wording of the Asbo states that Kennett must not carry any offensive weapon or engage in conduct or behaviour which is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person going about their lawful business.

The order, which will remain in force until April 2009, was deemed necessary to protect the community from further anti-social acts by Kennett.
The action was initiated by Huntingdonshire Housing Partnership after reports of continual harassment against its tenants and the order was agreed between the Luminus Group, HHP's parent company, working with the police, Huntingdonshire District Council and the Youth Offending' Service.
