You can't refer to this gent as 'Purple Aki' in mainstream print anymore due to race/legal issues - but this is the guy...the childhood bogeyman himself. Been back in court.

"A PRISONER is appealing against an order banning him from touching menís biceps.

Akinwale Arobieke is currently serving a 15-month jail sentence for breaching an interim sexual offences prevention order (SOPO) by feeling a young manís biceps in a shopping centre in Preston.

The order banned Arobieke from asking young men if he could measure their muscles and requesting them to squat.

He was jailed in November, 2007, for the breach, but is due to be released on April 24. During his jail stretch, a five-day trial was held at Liverpool magistrates court where the SOPO order was made indef- inite. Akinwale, formerly of Cavendish Gardens, in Toxteth, did not attend the court hearing on February 14, but he has now decided to appeal the decision.

At a hearing at Liverpool Crown Court yesterday, it was revealed Arobieke is bidding to get the order overturned on the grounds some of the evid- ence against him was inadmissible.

A hearing is now expected to be held on June 9.

Arobieke was given the interim SOPO order weeks after being released from a six-year prison sentence imp- osed in 2003 for 15 counts of harassment and one of intimidating a witness."

There is reference to him on the Urban Legends Website, which I posted in reference to Plank. This is the first time I could ever recall hearing of him; since then Jonno has told me a fair bit of info on the local fear and stories of him years ago when he was growing up.

The legend that scared us when we were kids is that he asked a young lad to feel his muscles at newbrighton baths,the kid got scared and left but purple acki followed him.the kid ran and cut across the railway line in new brighton and fell on to the third rail.I personally only seen him once and it was on a bus we were that scared we got off at the next stop.
