- "What about him? Why's he got his hat down like that?" "He's fuck ugly."
"Or maybe he doesn't want anyone to see his face."
"'Cause he's fuck ugly."
- ―Nicholas and Danny, referring to Peter
Peter Cocker was a citizen of Sandford. When Nicholas Angel first goes to Somerfield, he is called into Simon Skinner's office. While there, he notices Peter stealing biscuits. Nicholas confronts Peter, but he runs. Nicholas chases Peter throughout the village, finally capturing him by throwing a can of spray-paint at him, hitting him in the head and knocking him out. When he is at the station, Simon says he doesn't want to press charges and he is released.
Later, when the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance is revealed to be a murderous cult and attempts to kill Nicholas, Cocker's corpse is found underneath Callahoun Park. He was killed for his criminal activities.
