Another Asbo for teen who smashed Grimsby man's window 10 times
"DON'T suffer in silence."
That was the message from a Grimsby man terrorised by a teenage tearaway whose Asbo has just been extended for two years because of his repeated anti-social behaviour.
Tyron Hardy, 16, has caused a series of problems – including a hate campaign against Alan Fisher – and has been given another anti-social behaviour order in a bid to keep him away from trouble.
Hardy, of Sussex Court, Grimsby, had persistently behaved in an anti-social way since the original order was made on September 15, 2010, the court heard.

Today, Mr Fisher, 53, of Chelmsford Avenue, urged residents "not to suffer in silence".
He had his front window smashed 10 times.
He said: "I just kept at it, calling the police whenever there was trouble.
"One time there was a police woman in my front room taking a statement and he was firing stones at my window with a tennis racket.
"She called the police and they even got the police helicopter to trace him."
Mr Fisher, a food factory worker, said he installed CCTV at his home to record the incidents.
Now the culprits are not allowed in his street.
The terms of the new order were varied to ban him from:
Using abusive, insulting, threatening or intimidating language or behaviour in North East Lincolnshire.
Associating with Ryan Tomney or Declan Carr in any public place in North East Lincolnshire, unless on an educational activity or under the supervision of the youth offending service.
Being in a group of three people, including himself, and causing a nuisance and annoyance to others in North East Lincolnshire.
Defence solicitor Steven Freestone did not oppose the making of the order. No reporting restrictions were imposed by the court to prevent the matter being publicised.
As reported in September 2010, Hardy and Tomney made Mr Fisher's life a misery after launching a hate campaign against him.
For weeks, he was targeted by the two teenage troublemakers and they bombarded his home with missiles, hurled abuse at him and vandalised his property.
They wrongly believed he had called them thieves. Tomney had also, at the time, been given a two-year Asbo on the same day as Hardy.
After the latest hearing, Sergeant Colin Jarratt, a neighbourhood policing team supervisor, said: "Tyron now lives in the area I am responsible for and I can promise him that I, all my officers and police community support officers will be watching him very carefully and closely.
"He has a track record which indicates that he does not conform to court orders and that, sadly for him, included his last asbo.
"We could have applied for an extension of more than two years for him but, with the local authority, we decided that two more years should see him out of his current offending pattern, provided he starts growing up and behaves himself. That will be the test for him.
"He has breached his previous Asbo in the past, in particular by associating with other young people who are criminally minded, and this has resulted in him being arrested before he and his friends have committed crimes.
"The new Asbo will continue to put serious constraints upon him which will assist us in controlling him and preventing him from harming people. It really is up to him now. If he does what we all want him to do, he will have his asbo reviewed after a year and it can be revoked, but if he continues to misbehave then we will deal with him very robustly."
Sgt Jarratt added: "If he does reoffend, or anyone sees him breaking the terms of his order, then I would ask them to telephone us on the 101 number. They should use the 999 system if he is committing a 'crime in progress'. I can assure anyone who does give us information about him that it will be treated in the strictest of confidence."
