Clitheroe man admits assault on 16-year-old boy
11:45am Monday 2nd July 2012 in News
A 26-year-old Clitheroe man approached a teenager in the street and after saying ‘All right mate?’ punched him in the face.
Blackburn magistrates heard that minutes later Craig Robert Fairhurst falsely accused another teenager of stealing his mobile phone and then chased him into a nearby takeaway. The terrified boy held the door shut as Fairhurst tried to force it open and then smashed a pane of glass in the door.
Fairhurst, of Mitchell Street, Clitheroe, pleaded guilty to assaulting the 16-year-old and criminal damage to the takeaway window. He was made subject to community supervision for 12 months and must pay £100 compensation.
