A 14-year-old appeared in court charged with assault by beating.

The Bradford boy, who cannot be named due to his age, was sentenced at West Yorkshire Youth Court in Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court on May 16.

He was accused of assaulting a female by beating and pleaded guilty to the offence.

It happened on November 26 last year in the Bradford district.

The boy was referred to the Bradford Youth Offender panel for a period of three months.

That was on top of a nine-month contract imposed earlier this year for another offence.

He appeared in court on February 28 charged with an attempted robbery.

According to court documents, it happened on June 30 last year and an Apple watch was one of the items taken from his victim.
