The ring-leader of a group that made life a misery for neighbours has been fined more than £500 for breaching an ASBO banning him from parts of Tottenham.

Diego Bohorquez was originally given an anti-social behaviour order for terrorising people who live in Devon Close and the surrounding streets in October 2013.

The 21-year-old found himself back at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court last Tuesday, where he pleaded guilty to breaching his ASBO in November.

Bohorquez, of Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, would often hang out with other yobs in communal areas where he would openly smoke cannabis, drink alcohol, hurl abuse at neighbours, vandalise cars, damage property and drop litter.

Residents who tried to intervene were met with verbal abuse from Bohorquez and were accused of being “snitches” for attending Neighbourhood Watch meetings to discuss concerns.

The group even threw eggs, flour and paint on peoples’ cars, smashed windscreens and slashed tyres.

Bohorquez was seen by residents in Devon Close on November 4, 2013, despite an ASBO preventing him from entering the area for two years.

The court fined him £110, £400 costs and a victim surcharge of £20.

The ASBO prohibits Bohorquez from:

  • Entering Devon Close or Down Lane Park or a number of surrounding streets bordered by Dowsett Road, Parkview Road, Watermead Way, Hale Road, Monument Way and High Road, Tottenham.

It also bans him from doing the following within the borough of Haringey:

  • Loitering in any communal area of residential premises
  • Being in a group of four or more people (including himself)
  • Behaving in a manner that causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress
  • Doing any act (including making a statement), whether himself or by encouraging others to do so, which is likely to intimidate any person

Anyone who sees Bohorquez in the area above should contact the council’s Anti-Social Behaviour hotline on 020 8489 1000.
