Teen caged for robbing youngster
3:44pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in Crime
A SOUTHAMPTON teenager has been put behind bars after mugging a young boy.
Jack Parker, 17, will spend at least three months in custody after being given a six-month detention training order.
Parker, of Begonia Road, Southampton, and a friend approached two boys, aged 12 and 14, in Peartree Green, Southampton, last October before stealing a tobacco box and Blackberry phone.
Prosecuting, Charlie Gabb said they acted in a “bullying way”, wearing hoods while Parker also wore a balaclava.
The court heard Parker, who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), had a series of minor convictions at youth court over the past 12 months but has not complied with community orders and missed his first probation meeting.
