A teenager who shot one of his neighbours with a BB gun and committed a string of anti-social behaviour in Crewe has been handed a criminal behaviour order for two years.

The court heard how on the evening of 12 August 2016, the 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, walked up to his victim holding a coloured handgun and pointed it at him.

Despite the victim pleading with him not to shoot, the teenager fired it causing injury to his armpit.

The teenager also caused numerous disturbances at Sir William Stanier School on Coronation Street, Crewe including entering the grounds and leisure centre by using the facilities.

At Crewe Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 28 June, the teenager was issued with the criminal behaviour order preventing him from entering Sir William Stanier School and Leisure Centre, the Phoenix Leisure Park and the area around Queen Street.

He is also prohibited from using abusive language or threatening behaviour in front of a third party. He must not throw items or cause damage to property that isn’t his own or trespass without their permission, this includes sitting on their walls, running in and out of the front area or garden of properties or climbing on a roof.

The 14-year-old was also handed a restraining order preventing him from contacting, communicating or approaching the victim for three years.

Constable Warren Davidson, of Crewe Local Policing Unit, said: “This order has been granted due to this boy choosing to persistently offend. His actions have caused not only distress to his victim but to residents and the wider community.

“It is our duty to protect those who continue to cause harm to others and we will not stop until our communities are a safe place for everybody.”
