A SCHOOLGIRL attacked a younger girl in the street while her boyfriend stood and watched in his boxer shorts, a court heard.
The 15-year-old defendant, who is from Northwich but cannot be named, flew into a rage on the night of April 3 because she thought the 13-year-old was “trying to make a move on her boyfriend”.
Lawrence Bestow, prosecuting at Vale Royal Youth Court on Wednesday, said the victim and a friend had approached the 19-year-old man’s house after he “wolf-whistled” them, while standing at the front door in his underpants at about 10pm.
“He made comments to the effect that they were sexy,” said Mr Bestow. It was alleged the man had earlier exposed himself to the pair.
The defendant took exception to the girls and stormed out of the house towards the 13-year-old.
“She said, ‘Why are you trying to get into my boyfriend?’, and called her a ‘slag’,” said Mr Bestow.
The 15-year-old slapped and punched the younger girl to the floor before kicking her “a number of times” in the head and back.
She then went back inside the house before returning moments later to continue her assault, kneeling on the victim’s ribs as she lay on the ground, and throwing “several” punches at her face.
The defendant pleaded guilty to a charge of assault.
“The perception was that the young lady was trying to make a move on her boyfriend,” said Stephen Rodgers, defending.
“She accepts her behaviour was unacceptable and I would go as far as to say it was out of character.”
The teenager was told to pay £100 compensation and £35 costs, and was given a nine-month referral order.
