A pensioner who is furious at being barred from contact with a PROSTITUTE punched the council officer who imposed the ban, a court heard.

Allan Thipthorpe, 88, was livid after officials obtained an ASBO preventing hooker Terri-Lee Pearce, 31, from visiting his sheltered accommodation.

They claim the order was imposed for his own safety after £5,000 was drained from his bank account – which they believe he used to pay Pearce.

He allegedly told bank staff that they were “at it like rabbits” and she provided him with Viagra to fuel their sordid encounters.

Allan insists he should be free to spend his money how he wishes and that he employs her as his ‘carer’.

But now the octogenarian has been charged with assault after being caught on CCTV punching council solicitor Francis Maples.

And in a separate twist, he is also due to appear as a witness in support of Pearce when she goes on trial accused of breaching the ASBO by continuing to visit him.

Speaking when the ASBO was imposed, furious Allan said: “This is just a load of nastiness – the council don’t want you to enjoy yourself. I can do what I like, it’s my money.


“Blokes like ladies who are a bit cheesy and the ladies don’t. It’s jealousy. She’s young and she’s got nice legs.

“I’ve not got long to go, have I? I’m still attracted to ladies.

“I got that young girl to try to do me a job as, you know, my carer. I think I’m entitled to that.”

Terri-Lee is a well-known hooker in Swindon, Wilts., and has previous convictions for theft and prostitution.

She claims she turned her back on the vice trade and offered to help Allan – whose wife died two years ago – after meeting him in a cafe.

But the police and council responded to complaints from residents at Elizabeth House, the sheltered housing complex where Mr Thipthorpe lives in Swindon.

They are said to be “alarmed and distressed” by her presence and one elderly lady is so terrified she locks her doors and windows whenever she is there.

Council officials stepped in after discovering that Allan had reduced his bank funds from £5,000 in October last year to just £100 this month in order to pay her.

At Swindon Magistrates Court last July, Pearce admitted she had been with Allan when he had made several large cash withdrawals but claimed they were as payment for her services as a carer.

A judge imposed an indefinite ASBO banning Pearce from going near the OAP or entering any of the 32 council-run sheltered housing schemes in the town.

But now Allan has appeared at the same court accused of attacking Swindon Council solicitor Francis Maples, who imposed the order, on December 19 last year.

Rob Ross, defending, told the court: “You’ll probably be aware of Mr Thipthorpe.

“He’s an 88-year-old man involved in Asbo proceedings when a young lady was made an Asbo in relation to not seeing him.

“He objected to that and the long and short of it is he ended up hitting Mr Maples.”

Mr Ross told the court his client had admitted the assault in police a interview and would not be contesting the offence.

He added: “I would ask the crown why it’s necessary to leave an 88-year-old man with a record, why no mind was given to cautioning him?”

District Judge Simon Cooper agreed to adjourn the case to May 28 for the caution to be issued, but warned the prosecution would go ahead if no action was taken.

In a separate development, Pearce appeared at Swindon Crown Court this week accused of twice breaching her ASBO in February.

The court heard that Allan will appear as a defence witness. The case was adjourned until August 7 at Chippenham Magistrates Court, which has wheelchair access.

In 2004 Pearce was given a three-year ASBO banning her from any of the ‘red light’ areas of Swindon.
