Redditch man given Domestic Violence Protection Order following incidents

Redditch Editorial 20th Jun, 2024   0

A REDDITCH man has been handed a Domestic Violence Protection Order (DVPO).

Rory Williams, aged 25, of Auxerre Avenue, was given the DVPO on Tuesday for 28 days at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court.

If Williams breaches his DVPO by making contact with his victim, he could face a custodial sentence.

Det Insp Laura Douglas, from North Worcestershire’s Protecting Vulnerable People Team, said: “Domestic Violence Protection Orders allows us to take immediate action to protect vulnerable victims, and give them a degree of breathing space from the perpetrator while they consider their options with the help of support agencies available.

“We’re pleased the court has recognised the importance of this DVPO and granted the order for 28 days against Williams.”
