Teenager handed criminal behaviour order after shooting neighbour with BB gun

A 14-year old boy from Crewe who shot a neighbour with a BB gun has been given a two year criminal behaviour order.

Crewe Magistrates Court was told the teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, walked up to his victim on the evening of 12 August 2016 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.

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

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
  • banned from throwing 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.”
