‘Stay out of borough’

Scarborough Magistrates Court
Scarborough Magistrates Court

A SCARBOROUGH man accused of breaching a restraining order and burglary has been released from custody on conditional bail.

George Eves, 56, of St Mary’s Walk, was earlier convicted of two counts of harrassment relating to the same woman. He was sentenced to a restraining order, and it is alleged he breached the order by entering a defined area of Castle Road on February 18.

It is further alleged that between December 23 and 29 last year he entered a residence in Blenheim Terrace as a trespasser and stole two framed photographs, spare car keys, spare house keys and tarot cards.

Eves denied both charges at his previous appearance at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in custody pending his case management hearing.

At that hearing on Friday, the 56-year-old, who has been in custody since February 9, was granted permission to stay with his brother in Newcastle.

However, he was told he must not enter the borough of Scarborough except to attend court and must not contact the complainant either directly or through anyone else.

The case was adjourned until April 27 for committal proceedings, also at Scarborough Magistrates Court.
