Exasperated neighbours misery at hands of defecating dwarf given ASBO for nuisance calls to emergency services
Exasperated neighbours have described their misery at the hands of a defecating dwarf.
It is claimed Ian Salter-Bromley, 54, regularly spreads excrement and urine down the steps outside his council flat in Hull, East Yorks.
Other residents claim the four-foot tall dwarf regularly falls asleep in communal areas and exposes himself.
“Uncivilised” Salter-Bromley was handed an ASBO order at the start of November for a string of nuisance calls to emergency services and a campaign of public abuse.
He even launched a dirty protest in a council office, when he exposed himself before defecating all over the reception and toilets claiming his disability needs were not being met.
One female neighbour, who did not want to be named for fear of recrimination, said: “When he opens his front door, the stench that comes out is disgusting.
“We want him evicted.
“He urinates and defecates down the stairs – you can smell it as soon as you walk into the block.”
Salter-Bromley was handed an ASBO after calling Humberside Fire Brigade four times claiming he had either lost his keys or was locked out and needed crews to let him in.
The initial behaviour order was extended by Hull Crown Court last week, and the 54-year-old was warned he could face prison time.
The court heard he verbally abused staff in St Stephen’s shopping centre, Hull, on August 29, before a similar attack on September 12.
On the same day, he threatened to urinate on the floor of St Stephen’s and six days later, he verbally abused a woman on a bus, who had a young child with her.
On September 26, he lit a cigarette on a bus and urinated on the floor, which led to three passengers complaining to the bus driver.
Another woman resident said: “When he comes in drunk, he tends to fall asleep on the communal landing.
“One time, he was naked except for a T-shirt.
“When I told him off in the morning, his response was, ‘Why didn’t you just cover me up?'”
A male resident said it is time Salter-Bromley is evicted as he is intimidating other residents.
He said: “He has abused everyone in this block.
“It is embarrassing, especially when I have family and friends round.
“He is a real nuisance. His head is gone.
“He loves to go off into town in his wheelchair and harass people.
“We all just want him gone. We feel intimated by him and we are sick of it.”
Justine Mortimer, neighbourhood nuisance manager at Hull City Council, said: “We are unable to comment on individual cases.
“However, we do take complaints of antisocial behaviour very seriously and will take the appropriate action.”
