Man jailed and banned from Slough town centre for religiously aggravated harassment

A 33-year-old man has been jailed for religiously aggravated harassment in Slough following a Thames Valley Police investigation.

Amour Amodu, of no fixed abode, was unanimously found guilty by a jury at Reading Court on Tuesday, December 11 after a four day trial.

It is in connection to an incident on July 20 when Amodu racially abused members of the public, targeting both men and women, in McKenzie Square in High Street, at around 4.30pm.

Amodu has been sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment and a ten year criminal behaviour order, banning him from Slough town centre during that period.

Investigating officer, PC Toby Iredale based at Slough police station, said: “Amodu caused distress to the victims involved in this case.

“This is unacceptable behaviour which will not be tolerated by Thames Valley Police.

“A ten year ban on Amodu entering Slough town centre will hopefully give some reassurance to the community that crimes such as these will be treated seriously, offenders will be prosecuted and they will be taken to court.”

    Too little, FAR too late (to save the high street). Apart from being affected by changes in the retail sector at an international level, Slough high street was always a bit 'special' in having that menacing/violent/antisocial special ingredient, in addition to the annoying chuggers, that no other declining British high street could mimic. It's always had it, even when there was a BHS, Debenhams, River Island, Whittard, Threshers, Argos, Pizza Hut, Games Workshop, etc. Locking up this one loser is a drop in the ocean. It's pretty amazing he was even picked out. There have been people walking around with machetes in their pocket (as per the news this week) in the high street, stabbings, etc. and gangs operating openly. No doubt this will be paraded by the multi-million pound TVP PR machine all over the internet as an example of how they're doing something. The best thing the Slough high street aka Beirut could do would be to simply roll over and be turned into kommunalkas as appears to have been the socialist council's plan all along. And make them live in it.
