Well-known character Johann charged with stalking


A well-known Leighton character has been remanded in custody by Beds Police.

Johann Perera, 43, of Stanbridge Road, is a widely known fixture around Leighton town centre – often seen with his guitar preaching messages of positivity.

But Beds Police have revealed that he has been charged with two counts of stalking involving using fear of violence.

The charges apparently relate to two people and run from 4 November 2013 to February 2 this year.

At the time of press, no court date had been released.
