You do not have grounds for a non molestation order on these facts.
You could seek an injunction at the county court using the Protection from Harassment Act. If he has no good reason to be there then that should not be unreasonably denied.
The risk here though is that if the police will not act then that tends to suggest there are evidential problems. Normally they throw harassment warnings around like confettii so this is an issue frankly. You don't want to incur the cost of suing only to lose and end up paying his costs.
The police would not normally prosecute for this but they may give him a harassment warning. If they are refusing to do that even then you should consider the merits of the evidence before taking action as it could be a very expensive business.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
