Purple Aki released

Might bring back memories for those of us brought up in Merseyside in the 1990s:

No more measuring or touching men's muscles Oct 26 2006

Exclusive By Adrian Butler, Liverpool Echo

A MAN who terrified young men with bizarre requests to measure their muscles has been banned from three towns

Akinwale Arobieke was released from Walton jail today on license.

A Sexual Offences Prevention Order was passed against the 45-year-old, despite the fact that he has never been convicted of a sex crime.

He was banned from St Helens, Widnes and Warrington, cannot enter schools or sports grounds and cannot drive a car.

Arobieke, nicknamed Purple Aki, was jailed in 2003 on15 counts of harassment and one of intimidating a witness.

He had pursued his teenage victims for three-and-a-half years, forcing them to let him feel their biceps and making them bend over while he leaned up against their backs.

Arobieke's obsessive behaviour had continued in prison, the court heard.

Merseyside police applied to a court for the prevention order.

Prosecutor Maria Leslie claimed he had measured a man's muscles then performed an indecent act on him.

James Benson, defending, said he had not been arrested or charged for anything in prison.

He said: "All the complaints made, false or proven, are contained to muscle touching, measuring and squatting."

Officers reclassified him from category C to B during his spell in prison.

Mr Benson said Arobieke had become a target for false allegations.

Arobieke had been charged with five indecent assaults on males under 16 and many more assaults of males over 16 before he was jailed in 2003, the court heard.

The charges were dropped after he admitted the other offences.

At one point Arobieke stepped in to ask his defending solicitor to seek permission for him to measure a person's muscles in private when they consented.

An order banning him from owning pictures of musclemen at home was not passed.

Deputy District JudgeAled Jones granted the interim order, which will last for a month when police will apply for another.

What he can't do . . .

UNDER the Sexual Offences Prevention Order, Arobieke is banned from:

* Approaching or talking to anyone under 18 on purpose.

* Working somewhere he will be around under-18s.

* Driving or being a passenger in a car, except a taxi.

* Leaving Merseyside without the chief constable's permission.

* Entering St Helens, Warrington or Widnes without police permission.

* Loitering outside or going into a gym or sports club.

* Entering a school, college or university without police permission.

* Touching, feeling or measuring muscles or asking people to do squat exercises is public.

* Measuring muscles in private without consent.

Used to go to the Ymca gym in "Sintellins" and he use to be outside all the time like a bad smell. I know he got filled in on a couple of occasions, once right outside the police station. When plod came out and saw who was getting a kicking, they lost all ability to see or hear and wandered back inside. That time he tried it on with one of the Japslapping fraternity. LMAO.

The bastard tried it on with my lad when he was a 16yr old playing for Widnes RLFC Academy.....and a few of the others.

Had to have a little talk in his shell like,did'nt bother him after that....but still having a go at the others until he got nicked.

He's done the rounds of all the local rugby teams.

I always thought he was an urban legend until recently!
Oh the Barsteward is all too real, Only tried it on with me once, but as I was coming out from archery practise the threat to turn him into a kebab did the trick...........15 at the time got round corner and ran like fcuk

They should print an up to date photo of the Fatherless, so the latest generation know who to look out for.

The Purple One was a regular moocher around Picton Sports Centre in Liverpool until a concerned father decided to engage him in dialogue. He was beaten half to death with a baseball bat and even though the local plod knew the identity of his assailant, they didn't bother following it up.

The mere mention of that freak's name was enough to empty St Johns market of kids between the age of 10 and 18 in about 3 seconds flat. Unfortunately, the only righteous thing to do with him is do him with a neck shot and bury him in a shallow grave on New Brighton Beach

The Bastard chased me from a train in Moorefields station in Liverpool city centre, and I remember running up 3 flights of ecalators and down to the Pier Head, believe me guys it was the fastest I've ever run, Linford Christie eat your heart out, you wasn't the fastest runner in the world then believe me. lol

This is one guy that should be caged up with someone like Ian Huntley. FOR GOOD.

Think it was taken a while back (around the time of his trial I think). Apparently the Echo might release a picture of him tomorrow (legal issues), so we could have a good old fashioned nonce burning soon.

Nah - reg. Grew up in New Ferry so well remember Purple Aki's reign of terror - the carving of 'PA' onto young boy's buttocks with a stanley and chasing a lad onto the railway tracks at New Brighton.

I think he may have been 3 Para mortars at one point...
