- Contacting certain named individuals. 
- Entering Chaldon Road in Poole.

- Entering the Hamworthy area including his home address.

Ian Cooke, Safer Communities Manager, Borough of Poole, said: "These latest ASBOs and the four others we have at various stages of application demonstrate the council's commitment to protecting our communities and vulnerable residents from others whose behaviour causes them harm. The message for those whose behaviour causes nuisance and harassment in Poole is that with our partners we will take what ever measures necessary to protect our communities."
