Maylands: Police charge man for allegedly breaching lifetime McDonald’s ban

A MAN has been charged with trespass after he allegedly breached a lifetime ban from McDonald’s in Maylands.

Bayswater Police charged the Maylands resident with two counts of trespass overnight, after officers found out McDonald’s had issued the man with a banning notice.

According to WA Police, businesses have the right to issue banning notices in writing.

Police can charge a person who fails to comply with a notice.

Officer-in-charge John Waghorn said police were investigating other instances that involved the man.

“This person was going in all the time and was (allegedly) saying rude and suggestive things to all the female staff and in some instances to female customers,” he said.

“When we found out that he had a lifetime ban, they have gone back and captured all the instances where we have got video footage of him being there.”

The man is set to appear before the courts at a later date.

Senior Sergeant Waghorn said several businesses in Maylands have issued banning notices.

“If businesses want to issue banning notices to these particular people or groups of people who cause them grief, it has to be behaviour-based and they have to be doing something unlawful,” he said.

“If the shopkeeper wants to issue a banning notice, police won’t serve those banning notices on those people but we will certainly help the shopkeeper to draw up a document.”
